Possum in the City

possum sighting
We were visiting at my brother's house when the kids all came in screaming that there was a big rat outside. My brother went to investigate and found not a rat but a possum. It went from the side of the house to the front. My niece tried to get a pic of it but didn't succeed. I finally got this one at the front of the house. My niece went inside at this point running to close the window because the possum had started climbing up the wall and she was worried that it would climb into the house through the window.

I thought it looked kind of cute at this size. I've seen a bigger on out in the boonies, when it climbed into a trashcan and couldn't make its way out again.


  1. I found a small one inside a water meter box a couple of days ago.
