Opossums sometime play "dead" when they are frightened. Do not approach or attempt to touch an opossum exhibiting this behavior. They frequently "revive" and become extremely defensive. Opossums are capable of transmitting several different diseases. Even though opossums can potentially transmit rabies, they appear to be very resistant to the disease and are not considered serious rabies vectors. Opossums may also transmit Murine typhus or other diseases to people or pets through the fleas that infest them. Where opossums are common, pet owners should be diligent in controlling fleas on their animals.
The opossum or possum is the only marsupial (a pouched mammal) found in North America. The opossum's habitat is diverse, ranging from woodlands to open fields. They are most commonly found around streams or other wetland areas. However, in the urban areas of South Carolina, they seek shelter in attics, garages, chimneys, under houses, or in any other place that offers protection. Although very common in urban areas, opossums are rarely seen because they are nocturnal. Opossums are omnivores and eat a wide variety of foods. Their primary food is animal matter such as insects, earthworms, small rodents, snakes, snails, birds and frogs, but they also eat many kinds of fruits, berries and vegetables. In South Carolina's urban areas, they may eat pet food, fruit on trees, pecans, seeds in bird feeders and garbage in trash cans.
