Book Cover for: Opossums, Emma Carlson Berne


Emma Carlson Berne

Famous for their unlucky penchant to become road kill, opossums are actually smart and adaptable. Opossums are known to walk along roads looking for dead animals. Unfortunately for them, one of their main defenses against predators works against them in this situation. When threatened, opossums play dead, which means they often get hit by cars. Full of details, scientific data, and gross facts about the opossum's diet, this title will make readers see the scavenger in a new light.
