I just think they're neat: Opossums
While many North American residents see possums as overgrown rats, I argue that this opinion is an insult to these uniquely beautiful creatures. Most know the United States’ only marsupial for its ability to play dead in the presence of predators or, say, an incoming motor vehicle. However, their dramatics should not be held against them, as possums unfortunately cannot control when they play dead, as it is an involuntary stress response. Imagine if you dropped to the floor every time you had a pop quiz!
