Did you know the word opossum started with the letter O? I know, it catches me off all the time too. Thank God for spell check. Have you ever heard the saying “playing opossum”? This is when an opossum basically plays dead as a tactic to avoid being eaten. You can have a little fun with this southern charmer but with their sharp teeth and ability to carry diseases, I would not recommend you getting close to them. You may not see these animals because they typically come out during the night; but you may hear them or wake up to the evidence in your yard or by trash cans knocked over. If you think there is opossums living near you, give us a call!
