| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Opossom is the popular name for the pouched mammals which have a geographical range from the United States to Patagonia. They vary from the size of a mouse to that of a large cat, and have long noses, ears, and (generally) naked prehensile tails. The Virginian opossum, common over all temperate America, is the best-known of the family, and is found even in towns, where it acts as a scavenger by night. The crab-eating opossom inhabits Central and tropical South America."—(Charles Leonard-Stuart, 1911)
