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
