Bashful

Bashful

Bashful, a male opossum (patient #16-1741), was found by residence who noticed the opossum wandering around the neighborhood leaning slightly to the left and continually falling on its side.

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.
