Opossums (sometimes referred to as Possums) are one of the most unique animals in North America because they are the only marsupials found in the region. These animals are like the Australian Kangaroos that have a pouch for carrying their infants around until they are old enough to survive on their own. Opossums are omnivores that eat anything, including garbage. These little critters, while very slow on the ground are very good climbers and will most times live in your attics, underneath decks and sheds.
Humans have devised many construction methods to create fine homes for their families. Sometimes, wildlife also appreciates the wonderful construction of these homes and may find nooks and crannies to raise their own young. Opossums can be a problem throughout Texas. These creatures, related to the marsupials of Australia, can find their way into attics or under sheds or other materials on your property.
