Nope. They're not playing possum,
they are possums!!!
BOO BOO! I called these possums. They are nutria.
I knew that, just wrote the wrong thing.
(Guess it did not sound s cute as 'playing possum'.) =)
Thanks to those who brought it to my attention.
They live in the ditch that runs along the edge of my store property.
So once in awhile when I look out the kitchen window,
there they are, nibbling away, on, well whatever possums nibble away on. =)
I really do enjoy watching them, and although some say
they are destructive, they have not caused us any problems.
Hope the pic is not too blurry when you click on it.
Enjoy a little nature in your world today .
