Cute Baby Opossum

Cute Baby Opossum

Everyone loves cute baby animals, right?!  I know I do!  Tonight while hanging out with my wife’s parents out on their patio we heard something rustling around some bags of top soil.  To my delight and everyone else’s panicked surprise we found a baby Virginia Opossum.  I gleefully reached down and gently grabbed him by his little prehensile tail and brought him over proudly to show the group.  Once he was in the light everyone’s attitude shifted and we all gawked at how cute this little bugger was!  I was able to pet him for a few minutes and we let him go where we found him in the backyard and watched as he clumsily foraged for food in the dim lights from the patio.  What an awesome find!  What baby animals have you found?  Check out this video of our interaction.

Be sure to check out our adventure from this past winter where we show you “Possum Catching 101” by catching adult Opossums and teaching all about how amazing these creatures are.  If you just can’t get enough of baby animals, check out this video about a Baby Groundhog that I filmed up in West Virginia.  It’s always an adventure and until next time stay wild!
