September 2018: Virginia Opossum

Virginia Opossum (Didelphis virginiana)

With another first for FaunaFocus, September 2018 will feature the Virginia opossum, our first marsupial featured species! This rodent-like animal is the only marsupial that can be found north of Mexico and is often found in urban environments. It is listed as “Least Concern” on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.



Create art inspired by the Virginia opossum and share it in the FaunaFocus Discord Server or on social media with #faunafocus. Learn about more ways to get involved with FaunaFocus!
