Hi. My name was Adrian. I was a young and playful pup. They killed me on November 27. The shelter was full and I had to go. Please people, don't buy from breeders. Save our lives instead. Please. It is too late for me, but there are so many more.
Opossums have been around since the time of the dinosaurs & make up the largest order of marsupials in the Western Hemisphere, including 103 or more species in 19 genera. Possums are unusually resistant to the venom of venomous snakes and are extremely unlikely to acquire rabies. They have 50 very sharp teeth, more than any land mammal
