Playin’ Possum

Playin’ Possum

This nocturnal marsupial, an opossum or possum to some, and a few friends have been seen roaming around the vicinity of Conklin Avenue and East 98 Street in the last several weeks. When it was spotted on the property of one local family, they decided to take a picture of the creature. While it looks like a rat, the opossum is not a rodent but it can be rabid. It is not advisable to approach the animal or take it in as a pet.This nocturnal marsupial, an opossum or possum to some, and a few friends have been seen roaming around the vicinity of Conklin Avenue and East 98 Street in the last several weeks.
