I finally was quiet enough to get some pictures of a possum last night, lol. I think it's a cute little thing, despite the tail. :|

You are a nut for even going near that thing!!!

When I was growing up, if you seen one, you'd run like hell until you were in the house.

The only person allowed to go near them was a "Certified BB gun owner"!!!

Yeah, sure, go ahead and investigate one of those SOBs around where I grew up and you'd probably lose a limb!

And they don't die. The only way you knew for sure is if someone cut it's head off!!!

They can't really move fast enough to hurt you & they are blind as a bat. I'd run from a racoon before I would run from an opposum

Me too!
Ant ~ seriously I wouldn't grab it by the head, or do anything violent. I'm sure it would bite to defend itself, but most of the time they just play dead. I've caught them eating with Heathcliff, and they've never hurt him. I checked up on them, and all in all they are very docile. Don't be scared! ;)

Sadly, the only ones I have seen are dead on the side of the road.

:shock: He looks like he's about to jump onto your face/camera!

I'd only worry about a racoon if it was cornered, we have tons around here, but you hardly ever see them, because they don't want you to. For a dog, on the other hand, a racoon can be deadly.
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day, tomorrow doesn't look good either.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body; but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

Well we almost agree! ;) Other than the toes, and the tail ~ I think their little faces, and ears are adorable! They eat all sorts of bugs, and everything else although this one was munching on some left over cat food ~ so I truly don't mind them hanging around.
