Opossums are vicious, rabid creatures who will bite everyone they meet, right? WRONG!!!! I am a 12 year old girl. I caught an Opossum in a humane live trap and they are naturally tame. They NEVER bite. You can hold them, play with them, what ever! All they do is try to look fierce or play dead. They make great pets. I have experience with many. And how about the 'rabid' part? Well, Opposums have a low body temp, which makes it near impossible for them to have rabies. So give them a chance! Please comment your thoughts.
