O! Opossum!

Opossum Meadowlands-001
Most of the Virginia Opossums we see in the Meadowlands are, alas, road kills (though we like to think they are only pretending to be road kills).

Chris Takacs took this shot of an opossum by the base of the closed Kingsland Landfill on Disposal Road — an increasingly popular place for mammals of all sorts, with or without prehensile tails.

More on opossums, North America's only marsupial, here.

(Thanks, Chris!)
