Possum in the Compost Pile

This opossum has been a regular evening visit to our  compost pile. I don’t think it is heating up at this time of the year but at least s/he is loading up on nutrituous peels.

ADDENDUM – I had forgotten that oppossums are Marsupials – just like kangaroos. Only smaller, of course. Lots of fascinating information about oppossums here from the National Oppossum Society.

    I’ve never caught them but I’m sure the same goes on on my pile, plus skunks, raccoons, and God knows what else.

    Jason – A couple of years ago a porcupine was a regular visitor to our winter coompost bin.
    Nadia – My husband did get a good photo. WE can’t even go out to the henhouse without a camera!
