We saw a Possum!
(Brampton, Ontario, Canada)
One of our readers in Brampton, Ontario, recently spotted a Possum - here is their story!
A couple friends and I were outside at around 2:30am, when we stumbled upon what looked like a Raccoon
or a cat at first.
Curious, we took a closer look and were unable to decide what the creature was, given the low light conditions.
We returned home and hit the web to find out what animal it could possibly be.
The animal we saw:
-was approximately the size of a large cat
-resembled a giant rat
-was extremely docile
-had a white coat with black markings
-had a 6" fat tail
We came to the conclusion that we had seen a Possum
Yes, I'd say what you saw was a Possum - you can read more about these animals on our Possum Page. Thank you for your contribution to our website, Explorer!
