Opossum Covers His Mom's Face In Kisses | The Dodo Little But Fierce


    It's obviously not the optimum solution to domesticate a wild animal, but you made the right choice under a tough situation. Had you not adopted Butter, he would have probably died in 2-3 days of starvation, if not sooner by becoming some raccoon's meal.

    Driving home late on a dark road, I saw the eye shine and slowed down. Brights on, I saw a fat opossum just scooting across in front of me. It stopped and stared in my headlights and we just looked at each other. Finally I honked at it and it jumped and scooted away double speed into the woods. Still makes me smile.

    Maybe he stays because he see's no others like himself. You are his rock, he knows no one else. When he comes in comes to mating time, it might be different.

    Sadly possums are such misunderstood and mislabeled animals. The badgering media doesn't help either.. always labeling them having rabies or some dumb crap. The amount of uneducated crap that's spewed thru media is ridiculous. Glad he made it I saved a litter of 6 ! 😀

    I have been in the exactly same circumstances with a a white-eared opossum we found in our yard in Sao Paulo, Brazil. While we managed to rescue and feed him properly we were careful to avoid developing strong bonds with him. In the due time we introduced him back in the wilds again. I like to think he is ok but missed the liitle chap till tnia day! Tks for sharing thia video!

    It's funny how much the one I found acted like a cat! The silly critter loved having his chin scratched. But never expect that with a wild animal, that one was raised by someone who set it free.

    Just keep him happy. I think it would be way better to have possums rather than cats, especially in bush land suburbia. As we all know, cats destroy way too many of our smaller native animals. I get tonnes of negative responses from pissed off cat lovers but the facts are undeniable. I’d rather see small birds & animals every now & then instead of the many neighbourhood cats hiding in wait to attack yet another native bird! Get to know your native wildlife, they’re really fascinating to watch.

    Aww, I rescued a teenage almost adult possum from my cat and dog who were going to do him in. Didn't think. Just scooped him up. Possum's are tame wild critters. Slept with him. Released him to a safe place nearby after talking with a professional trapper. Sweet night of my life spending it with him.

    We raised three Babies like this, who's mother had been hit by a car. 2 of them were released, but one refused to leave. He stayed with us his entire life. They will learn to use a Cat Box on rainy days when they can't go out. They eat just about anything after they mature. And he got along well with our Dog and Cat, except when he would sometimes steal their food when they weren't looking. They do like regular attention. They only live about 3 to 4 years. One thing to remember about them in the wild. They eat thousands of ticks, and other small vermin. They do not contract rabies. They rarely ever bite a human in the wild unless you just get stupid with them. In that case they have really big fangs and can bite the snot out of you. You probably deserved it.

    I tried to care for 3 tiny hairless opossums. My dog killed their mom and sat her in our driveway. I went out there to mover her but babies are all over the yard. My ma stepped on one by accident and the rest were dead from trauma. I kept them warm and fed them til they lost the will to eat anymore. I wish it would have gone better

    It would be helpful if The Dodo would share what the legal issues are when saving wildlife. Where I live it's illegal to have a wild animal as a pet without proper legal approval, but there is so much need for the animals to be saved.

    We have 3 wild in and near our yard, one comes every night. I named them all "Chompers!" If I call them, within a minute or 2, one of them will show up. I've never seen them Play Dead, they are very calm and never try to hurt any of the other wild animals. Recently a large Racoon had 4 tiny super cute babies, now all 5 of them will randomly show up and mess with poor Chompers. They are just sweet animals.

  • Ag21

    Jesus is the way, truth, and the life! He is the alpha and omega and the only way to heaven and to the Father!! Believe in the gospel with your heart to be saved! The gospel is, Jesus (second member of the Godhead), who is the fullness of the Godhead in bodily form, came to earth, shed His blood on the cross for all our sin debt, died, was buried, and God The Father raised Him from the dead on the third day! By faith alone are we saved in this gospel!!!

    Due to their physiology, it is almost impossible to keep a captive opposum healthy and even harder to know when it's sick or find a vet that cn help. Every single expert advises don 't do it. I do hope this one proves to be the exception.
