About Opossum: Appearance, Biology, Life Cycle, Habitat, Diet, Behavior

The name opossum is taken from the word “opossum” given in Virginia during 1607 – 1611 which ultimately means “white beast”. These are not specialized animals means their flexible diet and reproductive process, help them to survive in diverse and extreme conditions and locations. This might be one reason that they are the survivors of the dinasour age.

There are 60 known species of opossum, these are the only marsupial means “pouched” animal, almost as large as a house cat to as small as a small mouse found in the Western Hemisphere most commonly Canada and United States. These four legged creature’s looks differ from different species; most of them have long snouts, small heads with a distinct looking sagittal crest with the mouth full of teeth and large canines. A small tail and the whole body are covered with fur of awn hair. One more distinct feature is the hind legs do not have claws and females have a pouch.

Amazingly the immune system is so robust that opossum is immune to venom of cottonmouths, rattlesnakes and vipers. Research also shows that Opossums very rarely, are the carrier of rabies virus which is pretty common in wild dogs.

Life cycle:
Opossum usually lives for 1 – 2 years and that is majorly because of too many predators like cats, dogs, other wild animals and many case humans. The offspring’s birth rate from one mother is also high however survival rate is less. Opossum male’s penis looks like a fork with two glands. The gestation period is 11 to 13 days and after those very small infants are born, the size of these infants is so small that almost 20 could fit in a tablespoon. These offspring’s have to find their way to the pouch and attach themselves to the teat, failing that they die. Those who succeed continue to grow and the juveniles ride on the mother’s back within a period of 70 to 125 days these juveniles are ready to leave the mother’s pouch.

Originally found in Central and south eastern America which expanded further north and west now also be found in Europe. During early 1900 these animals were gifted as pets and reached Washington later spread because of either escaped from captivity or been released intentionally. That was the time when the natural predators were less and an abundant food resource helped the population grew so today these white beasts live near to urban or suburban areas.

The amount of veggies or meat diet, defers with the species. As this creature is from the dinosaur’s time they could practically eat anything from fruits, nuts, grains, insects, snakes, mice, and eggs, small animals dead or alive and also on human garbage. One of the species Yapok utilizes its webbed hind legs to swim and catch fish.

These animals usually stay alone however some of the species dwell in packs and find left burrows or small caves or tree trunks, they do not actually believe in creating their own dwellings. One of their defensive behaviors which also added to their name is ‘possum’ which means lying down imitating dead, so that the hunter lose interest in eating a dead animal.
