In this episode, we get pretty confused talking about opossums v. possums – because they sound the same! We sort it out with the help of Jaguar’s helpful poem. We also learn about why they play dead and why it’s so confusing, other gross defense mechanisms, and lots of other cool facts.
Our friends at Nature Nerds are going to be putting out an episode on opossums too! Be sure to check it out.
