Have you found an overturned trash can in your yard and blamed an opossum? Maybe you've spotted one slinking about the edges of your neighborhood late at night and were taken aback by their hairless tails and sharp teeth. While kangaroos are a close relative of the opossum, and well loved by many, opossums are often thought of as overgrown rats! The truth is that opossums are very beneficial, eating many garden pests, and consuming huge amounts of ticks. Opossums may even be a weapon against the fight to prevent Lyme disease. Discover amazing truths about the awesome opossum, and come to understand how they benefit our world.
