They will consume garbage, fruits, worms, grubs, and grains. Opossums are known for playing dead when frightened, an adaptation due to their lack of escape ability. They have a pointed nose, long pointed tails, and are approximately 15 to 20 inches in length. Opossums are armed with very sharp teeth that can deliver a painful bite that requires a doctor’s visit, as they can be hosts to many diseases, including rabies.
