A couple of weeks ago, when I saw this opossum scurrying across the top of the fence, I immediately thought BABIES!!!!
Being a marsupial, (the only one native to North America) it can be rather easy at times to tell when they’re carrying their young in their pouch as it protrudes significantly!
Sure enough, the mother paused on the tree branches up above just long enough for one of her babies to peek his little head out as if to say …
“May I come out now to play?”
