Opossum

By

On a Midnight Mushing tour with the WooFDriver, the WooFPAK caught the scent of this Opossum! They are famous for “playing possum” when threatened by dogs, foxes, and other predators. This one however felt it was at a safe enough distance being up in the tree! They are excellent tree climbers and nest in tree holes or dens made by other animals.
