Baby opossum I mounted, this one remains in my personal collection and I will never sell it... however I'm doing a private handcarving taxidermy workshop for a student this weekend and we are also working on BABY OPOSSUMS! .
Did you know that male Opossums are called jacks and females are called jills. The young are referred to as joeys, just like their Australian cousins, and a group of opossums is called a passel.
Opossum have the most teeth of any mamal too and there are so many other unique things about their anatomy as well. They have prehensile tails which are adapted for grasping and wrapping around things like tree limbs. The opossum can hang from its tail for short periods of time, but the creature doesn't sleep hanging from its tail as some people think.

Look at my little hands🖐🏼😱😍
I was very sad I’d lost my mom😥it broke my new families heart💔I even played dead several times the first couple days, I was really good at that😅❤️ #DayOne
Lost my mom have you seen her😢found Archie on 8-06-2018 next to our garage door in a small bush peering out. He was about 10 weeks, most likely fell off moms back as she walked through our property that night. Unfortunately that’s all too common and the moms never realize one or two might be gone...
Reminder that I'm selling my brand new Opossum tail. It was made by @rawrheartc4zz
it's never been worn other than to have it's pictures taken. This tail is really nicely made. I've made a character to go with it.
I'm in a really bad financial spot so I'm selling it. My infant brother needs to get to a mandatory doctors appointment on the opposite side of the state and we've been evicted.
All I ask is $80 plus shipping. I can only do US.
If you're local to upstate SC we can arrange a pickup.
I need to sell as soon as possible.
I can make a different character to go with it if you don't like this one.

Clean feets, clean tail, clean belly, clean house. Happy opossum.
*SWIPE* Here's a glimpse at some of the wildlife we have treated this summer! Back to the Wild rehabilitates over 2,000 animals every year, with the bulk of our animal admissions being between the months of May and October.
In addition to the animals featured in the photos we are caring for and have released eagles, owls, bats, gulls, songbirds and waterfowl of all varieties, squirrels, bunnies, turtles, and so much more!
We need your help to continue caring for Ohio's wildlife and helping the community around us!
Visit our website, www.backtothewild.org (linked in our bio!) for ways to donate and for volunteer opportunities.
Don't forget to add us as your Amazon charity and take a peak at our Amazon Wishlist while your at it!
Without you, there is no us for them! #BTTW #backtothewild #wildliferescue #animalrehabilitation #wildliferehabilitation #animalrescue #animalphotographer #conservation #sandusky #castalia #animal #nature #charity #nonprofit #animalphotography #lakeerie #wildliferehab #skunk #bluebird #birdsofinstagram #animalsofinstagram #sandpiper #hawk #hummingbird #squirrel #opossum #bluejay
Found this one trapped in the trash can this morning and was happy to help them out. Big fan. #TGIF #opossum
Good thing the murderous Rumi wasn't around to see this. If a fight would have ensued, I most surely would have passed out from the sheer grotesqueness.
Post-post caption: A hour or two has passed since I posted this and it has come to my attention that some people have overtly taken offense bc I didnt do exactly what they would have in my situation. So if you yourself feel a way about how I handled it, before you jump out a window and land in my comment section, take notice that the opossum is in better shape at the end of the video than s/he was in the beginning when Gus, found it. #fallback

Today I went to someone’s house who has a pet Opossum named Fluffy! Fluffy is pretty cool and we didn’t bother each other! I wasn’t afraid of her either (I WAS afraid of their pet raccoons though! No thanks!!).
