Straffordville Possum

by David Helsdon
(Straffordville, Ontario, Canada)

I saw my first possum here back in the early 80s.

This one is the biggest one I've seen.

His ears are evidence of possums not being adapted for our cold winters.

He looks a good size, and yes that is damage from frostbite on his ears. We live near St Thomas and we had one that lived under our front porch for a couple of winters, and his ears were damaged too.
