St. Thomas Possum

Good morning - Just spotted a Possum strolling across our backyard, in St. Thomas, Ontario. It appeared to come up from the ravine area behind our home, walked across our lawn, down the driveway, crossing over to the neighbours driveway, crossing our dead-end street and disappeared behind a hedge across the street.
We have a ravine area on two sides of our property and have seen deer, raccoons, skunks, rabbits and a wide variety of birds in our yard, but this is the first sighting of a possum!
