I got the surprise of my life when I saw this possum with her brood on her back presumably on their way to somewhere. I have no idea where they came from - didn't even know they were in the neighborhood LOL. Anyway, I got my camera and took this picture and wish them good travel and lots of luck.
I don't know much about possum. I don't bother them as long as they don't bother me and as far as I know, they don't. Live and let live. They were here first before housing development ran amock and robbed them of their natural habitat. I once saw a red coyote in the nearby regional park - I do not know how it got there but I know it is not going anywhere because the park is bounded on all sides by busy streets and beyond that are single family homes and commercial establishments. The reality of a fast shrinking world sucks and we are all in it. What a disconcerting thought.
