Opossums are the only marsupials native to North America, where they thrive in wooded and suburban areas east of the Rocky Mountains.
Nocturnal marsupials eat almost anything, including garbage, roadkill, rotten fruit, grass, insects, birds, and snakes.
They have a reputation for playing dead by curling onto their back, sticking their tongues out, squirting foul fluid from their anuses, and staring off into space when confronted by predators. Opossums also attempt to scare predators by baring their teeth and hissing, which many people mistake for a sign of rabies.
