Last summer, at the end of summer we were all over my sister Cris's house of Mommy's Midwest Mountain for a swim. She had been telling us about this little dwarf opossum that would come to her bird feeder for food. So we stayed late to see it. We were all gathered around the sliding glass window with the lights off like it was a movie theater waiting for the tiny opossum to show up.
He did! He was so tiny and cute, but it wasn't long before he was scared off by a normal size opossum. We were all like awwww, go away normal opossum we want to see the little one again. The normal one kept coming back and forth from the dark to the light teasing us. Each time we thought it would be the little one back. So one of the boys scared him off so the little one would come back. We were all glued to see it , when all of a sudden the face of what looked like a wild bore, but white and huge appeared right before the glass! We all screamed, "Ahhhhhhh!" and ran away. It was the largest opossum I had ever seen in my life. It really was as big as a pig. I still wish I had a picture of that.
