The Opossum in the Back Yard

When I first saw her I thought she had been in a fight and her back was messed up. But as she was walking around my eyes focused better and I saw she had a baby on her back!

 Ethan spotted her, too, and took off after her. I didn't want to get too close so my photos are a bit blurry.
Look at the baby's little ears sticking up!
It's probably not a good idea to feed her? What do opossums eat anyway?

possums scare the bejeesus out of me. even though the baby is kinda cute. i would think they ate carrots.

I wonder if that is the same one that I got a picture of the last time I was home!?! If not maybe Mom's house is a good opossum hang out. I think they are omnivores. Love ya :)
