Fun Friday: Awesome Opossums

Posted by Bonnie Hillman-Trikologist on on May 12th 2017

Did you know opossums have superpowers?  Besides being a part of the marsupial family?  We here at Trikaroo love our Marsupials.  Really, who knew there were so many interesting facts about these little guys..

Here are a few examples:
1) An individual possum can eat 4,000 ticks in a single week, cutting down on infectious diseases like Lyme disease.
2) They have a near-immunity to rabies.
3) They have a total immunity to rattlesnakes, cotton mouths and other pit vipers.
4) Their kind has been around since the time of Tyrannosaurus Rex and they likely ate dinosaur eggs.
