What Do Opossums Eat?

·     Opossums are omnivorous

·     Their diet consists of dead animals, mice, rats, snails, slugs, frogs, ground eggs, worms, birds, snakes, grass and small animals.

·     They are great scavengers and are attracted to homes that leave pet food outside.

·     When consuming small animals, the opossum will eat the bones to satisfy their need for large amounts of calcium.

Identifying Opossums

Identifying Opossums

·     Opossums have 50 teeth, sharp claws, grey to black fur with a white face, hairless ears, and a long hairless, pink tail.

·     People often mistake them for a large rat but opossums are not rodents, they are marsupials.

·     Opossums have opposable thumbs on their rear feet, which aids in their amazing ability to climb into attics and up trees.
