Exactly. Those are really beautiful figures and I am looking for something like that, but that's not the animal -though Opossums can be also called Possums, but in truth they are two different genres and the one I'm looking is this one:
I wasn't thinking on spending too much, 3 or 5 dollars at the most. Usual price for a regular miniature...
Yeah thought do... I wouldn't wanna pay much more myself, but that's not enough for me to make you a custom. Would barely cover materials.
Not enough love for opossums. Can't figure out why everyone thinks they are so vile. They are adorable, really interesting and just plain cool.
Here you go. This is Mortimer. Maybe. They are sort of cool, really a success story but can be a problem. Reminds me of a story recently. In Brooklyn, New York City they supposedly brought in opossums to get rid of the rats. Didn't work of course, opossums don't eat live rats at all. Now, opossums all over the place. May not be true, the local government denies the whole thing ever happened, I don't know. But they can smell bad, I don't know if I would want one as a pet I know, we 'mercans can give some to you Englisher types to go with the grey squirrels. Oh, and the raccoons in some parts of Europe! ;D
There was an opossum in my friends yard in VA eating cat foot... and I wanted a closer look, so he chased it hoping it would panic and play dead.
It didn't. But boy. Do they look funny when they run. I bet it never ran that fast before.
I only saw 2 in the space of 9 weeks in the states. But ever time I saw any form of wildlife I was like wow.
The only thing Britain has on top VA (and surrounding area, i don't wanna say US cuz it's so varied) wildlife, I think, is our common bird species are more interesting than common species there.
My garden is filled with sparrows, blue and great tits (chikadees?), magpies (pica pica, not the non-corvid variety), carrion crows, actual robins, thrushes, wood pigeons, some kind of dove... And okay, so it's not native, but ring necked parakeets. I see all of these daily.
In the us, the only bird I saw every day were American robins and circling "buzzards". And WHY is it that both of these names are used for completely different types of bird in the UK?
