Is this a possum?
(Oakville, Ontario, Canada)
This animal in my backyard
I live in Oakville, Ontario and was preparing the breakfast a couple of days ago and an animal like a rat was in my backyard.
I seems to be a rat, but some people told me that this is a Possum.
I do not know who to contact, a pest control or whom? It seems is living below the deck of my pool.
If any of you have a hint, I'll appreciate the comment.
I am attaching the picture.
Thanks and regards!Hello Li, yes, what you have there is a Possum, officially known as the Virginia Opossum!
They are pretty harmless and don't cause much trouble and when they feel threatened, will roll over and play "dead".
Thank you for sending us your picture!
