Typically ground animals, opossums rarely venture into attics. The females have a pouch on their belly to carry and birth their young. Breeding season is February and March and give birth just weeks later where the young are the size of Honey Bees at birth and reside in the mothers pouch for 60 days. Litter can be up to 13. Opossums choose to live in burrows under stoops, porches, decks, and sheds. They are nocturnal animal meaning they become active shortly after sunset until shortly before sunrise and spend their days sleeping.
