Scary fangs

As temperatures rise more birdseed (critter food) is exposed. This opossum walked right up on the deck yesterday.

It couldn’t be bothered that 4 people and a cat were a few feet away, separated by a glass door. I had to open the door to get it to look my way.

Fangs!

The vicious teeth they don't use..... Their only defense is noise (hissing) and knocking themselves out and emitting a dead smell.


evening entertainment…..

My girls watching the opossum.

      It looked pretty damn comfortable trotting up the deck stairs… It’ll be wrestling my bird feeders off tree limbs and posts soon making me mad!

      You should have heard the girls roar when Jon brought home a whole packet of paper for them. She’s loving it.
