Baby (Joey) Wild Opossum Eating A Meal - Close Up Video Included!

The Opossum Explorer!


This is a follow up to my previous post and video entitled, Opossum with babies (joeys) - A Very Tight Squeeze!.

What you are seeing here in the photo and of course in the video, is one of the baby (joey) opossum that was holding on for dear life on Momma's back in the previous video.

The overall length of this little one is about 9 inches of body length and about 14 to 16 inches long if you include the tail that you can see towards the end of the video.

What he is foraging for is some stale oriental noodles that my wife had thrown out the night before.

What makes this rather rare, is the same thing as the other video, both videos were taken in mid-afternoon.  This is a time that opossums are not usually active.

Should we have more appearances in the future, I will certainly do some more blog posts on them!
