Wildlife Oak Park

 We walked out the door, ready for the day, and lo and behold, Addie spotted a live critter in the shrubbery right outside the back door.  Look, everybody!!! It's a real cute wild animal!!!  Hey Mom, what is that?
Is this creature afraid of the dogs? the chickens next door? the cats? the squirrels? Apparently not.

absolutely NOT camera shy.
That, my children, is called a possum.  Peter was clever enough to insist that I grab the camera.  But of course!!!!

  1. The only good thing I have to say about possums is that at least they aren't actually rats, they only look like them.
