ABC Wednesday - O is for Opossum

O is for Opossum..........

A couple of weeks ago, my "J" post featured a critter in "jail"

At that time, he was the second Opossum that we had caught in our have-a-heart trap.

We gave him a new home a couple miles away also.

Since that post, we have caught two more of these creatures.

Thinking that they were returning, we squirted a small spot of paint on the third one's rear haunch.

  The fourth one was not the painted one, so we put a different color on him.

Well, I still hear another one under the house.

Can't wait to see if he has any paint on him once we catch him.

If this keeps up, there is going to be a whole family of rainbow opossums living a few miles down the road!


This is the tenth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.

  2. Since they're kind of creepy looking, I guess they could use some color to brighten them up.
