What Animals Live in your Space

The Virginia Opossum works here too. In the urban area I live by, Toledo, Ohio, we do see opossums. These opossums or Didelphis virginiana is the only marsupial in North American and they live in the wooded areas by farms, around swamps, marshlands, and even under homes. The opossum doesn't have a lot of relationships with other organisms because it mainly preyed upon by coyotes, foxes, badgers, and great horned owls. They fear Homo sapiens (humans), cars, and dogs. They are hunted more for their fur than for food. I can't think of any other species would like to interact with they are mostly loners, except when mating and carrying their young.

               The Virginia Opossum has adapted to the urban life by eating insects, plants, and grains. In winter they build their dens under our homes and come out to eat thru our garbage, road kill, worms, snails, and even birds if they can catch them. Humans do not want anything to do with it them and they us. Humans and opossums in my opinion will never coexist in harmony. It is a human-animal conflict and not human-wildlife conflict. A lot of people enjoy the wildlife, how they survive, and also as recreational purposes. Since they carry disease, scavenge through garbage and personal things, it would never be a pet.
