    thank you for being such good people on saving this poor animal when many would just let them drown just because of what they look like when they keep the tick population down. I think that they are really kinda cute. Do not know if you are Michigan born and raised but from a native Michigan person raised by Lake Miichigan thank you for looking out for a such a wonderful creature.

    Seeing his or her tiny hand clinging to that red pillow as he lay resting in your boat just brought tears to my eyes 😭 All of God's creatures deserve compassion and help when in need--that includes the lowly opossum. They are quite misunderstood and are often abused bc of that. It is loving acts of kindness like yours that help to restore our Faith in humanity. I know you'll be blessed for being a blessing 🙏
    Side Note on Opossums:
    Most people don't realize how important they are for controlling the tick population--they can eat up to 5,000 ticks in 1 season alone!!! Sound gross? Sure, but it's not half as gross as having a tick bite you, potentially transmitting tick-borne disease & illness 😬 They also consume other "less desirables" like roaches, rats/ rodents & other creepy crawly things that I'd personally rather not have inside of my home.
    Their only form of self-defense or protection is playing dead ("playing possum") or hissing while showing a mouth full of teeth. They don't carry Rabies, they very rarely bite & they'll run away without harming a thing if given the chance to do so.
    Search IG for rescued opossums & they'll win your heart over in no time 💕✌️😁

      @James Hardalong yep flying spaghetti monsters are real?! Your an idiot and I don't HAVE to entertain you but I the time so if you wanna go back and forth about "monsters" we can. I am a little bored. Entertain me away. Your last name speaks volumes hard all along. I believe you are indeed a hard headed idiot all along. Hardalong lol 😂 I would have made fun of you in my school years 😂 I'm hungry now what do you suggest I eat? Spaghetti monsters sounds good 👌 please keep replying like I said I have the time to have fun with people like you.

    Poor baby was playing opossum, I carried a young one off my back porch out to the edge of the yard thinking it was dead...after a short while it was gone. I had forgotten how they play dead when they feel threatened.

    Why do we always call animals him or he or Little guy or dude. Rarely do people assume the animals gender is female. Does this baffle anyone else
