Bashful, a male opossum (patient #16-1741), was found by residents who noticed the opossum wandering around the neighborhood leaning slightly to the left and continually falling on its side. He had suffered an unknown trauma and as a result, has neurological deficits that prevent him from being successful in the wild.
Fun Fact: A female opossum gives birth to helpless young as tiny as honeybees. Babies immediately crawl into the mother's pouch, where they continue to develop. As they get larger, they will go in and out of the pouch and sometimes ride on the mother's back as she hunts for food.
