The opossum is a type of marsupial that can weigh up to 14 pounds. A female opossum can give birth to litters with up to 20 babies, so if you have an opossum on your property it should be safely removed.
Signs That You Have an Opossum on Your Property
The most obvious sign of an opossum is seeing one on your property. Opossums nest in dark areas, such as under a porch, in the attic or around backyard shed. They come out mostly at night, but you may see one during the day if it has been frightened. The animal may suddenly lay on its back without moving.
What to Do If You Find an Opossum on Your Property
Opossums are shy creatures that prefer to stay away from humans. If you come across an opossum, do not try to capture it, even if it is lying still. If the animal is very scared, it will bare its teeth and possibly bite. Simply make note of where you found the animal, and call a professional to trap and remove the opossum.
