Youth Videoconference - Awesome Opossums

When: March 21, 2017
Where: Videoconference
Hosted By: TWA
Who: Youth Educational program

The perception of opossums is (hopefully) changing with their animated counterparts becoming more popular, especially in movies! Virginia opossums may be the most unique North American mammal, but perception tends to overshadow their awesome traits. Opossums are awesome because of their adaptations, which allow them to live in a nocturnal environment, their unique marsupial structures, and their ability to play dead, just to name a few.  We will also clear up any myths and misconceptions that you and your students have about this awesome animal. Please join us and our critter guest star!
