The little marsupial that is too good to be true.
This little opossum is frequently found inside homes
in tribal villages of Brazil. They are considered good luck
and keep the home free of insects and mice.
In captivity these little finger-clingers make clean
little pets. Only 3-6 inches long.
Very quite, active and inquisitive, with a unique
adaptation in caring for their young,
this critter will bring hours of enjoyment!
A ten-gallon aquarium with a tight fitting secured lid is the best choice to house your opossum. They are escape artists.
Provide a hide box, an exercise wheel and branches.
Feed opossums a high quality dry kitten food or dry ferret food. They love crickets and mealworms. Provide fresh fruit/veggies several times a week.
Use an 8oz. water bottle.
Opossums are solitary animals and should be kept alone.
Habitat should be kept at temps of 75 degrees Fahrenheit or warmer.
Lifespan 8 years.
