Did you know that Possums only live in Australia? Opossums are naive to the Americas- Possums are actually a totally different animal. They’e an example of our favourite thing- CONVERGENT EVOLUTION BABY. Both animals are marsupials, however possums (the aussies) are more closely related to kangaroos. This week we are joined by Ally the Opossum expert, rehabilitator, and artist! We get some seriously cool- and seriously weird- Opossum trivia, learn all about her Opossum rescuing practice and discuss how wildly cute these little dudes are. Head over to our instagram for evidence of this and don’t forget to follow Ally @itsmesesame for more Opossum updates!
