As nocturnal animals, they favor dark, secure areas. These areas may be below ground or above ground such as attics, basements, crawl spaces and garages. When threatened or harmed, they will “play possum”, mimicking the appearance and smell of a sick or dead animal. The lips are drawn back, teeth are bared, saliva foams around the mouth, and a foul-smelling fluid is secreted from the anal glands. Call us for opossum removal services.
