Opossum - back in the land of the cold Toronto March 7, 2014

My first Opossum in the wild.  I have seen many at the Toronto Wildlife Centre being treated for frostbite and babies who parents have been killed by the road.
This opossum was sitting on the side of a path but did not seem to be moving. I called Sarrah Wildlife Rescue staff and she made a couple of suggestions.  Once I did what she recommend the opossum seem to become alert and walked away.  Thank you Sarrah.
See the tooth.



They are so pretty

    1. The large telephoto lens makes it look close but I was some distance away.
