Is it playing dead or is it really alive and thriving in my space?
Opossums are notorious for playing dead if they think a predator is approaching. Even though they usually don’t attack, they will bare their teeth and hiss as a way to try to scare off a predator that has come to close. They also release a terrible odor when scared. Opossums are nocturnal and the only marsupials native to North America. These infamous critters love to sneak around houses at night looking for food. They will eat anything from insects to
garbage to roadkill. They can also be quite damaging to both residential and commercial properties. If they decide to burrow or forage near your space they can disturb gardens, pet areas, and parts of your home. They will stay as long as there is food to eat.
