Possum in Richmond Hill
(Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada)
Last night my boyfriend told me that while he was out riding his bike, he spotted a "giant rat the size of a Raccoon".
While trying to hold back my laughter, I asked if its tail colour was pink (yes) and the colour of the fur, to which he responded white/grayish.
I told him it must have been a Possum then.
He lives fairly close to a large forest area (the observatory) so it's not uncommon for animals to come out at night, as I've seen a Coyote
strolling down his street and a family of White Tailed Deer
jumping around in a field nearby. Thank you for sending us your report - I found a picture of a Possum ... I hope you don't mind my adding it to this page.
I will also post your report on our facebook page.
