    I caught a baby possum last night. I couldn't help but LMAO when I saw this tiny thing! I looked at it and wondered how in the world it was even able to set the trap off. [​IMG] DH told me to let it go and catch it again when it gets bigger. Uhhhh...how about a "no" to that. [​IMG] He is going to go on a little ride, though. I'm thinking about one of the RV parks around here. They usually have lots of cats. [​IMG]

    Not that sort of baby. It's got some big ol' teeth for something so small. [​IMG] Slightly bigger than my hand.

    You might want to call a nature rehab center. Often they have volunteers who care for baby wildlife.
