Pet Talk: Opossums as pets

This week on Pet Talk, we're discussing Brazilian Short Tailed Opossums. Two of the critters made an appearance on Brazos Valley This Morning.

Brazilian Short Tailed Opossums are nocturnal and very acrobatic so they need a lot of climbing space. They are also insectivores and probably better suited as a pet for an older child.

You can contact the TAMU College of Veterinary Medicine if you're interested in learning more about taking care of Brazilian Short Tailed Opossums.
