Didelphis virginiana (Virginia Opossum)

Language: French; Spanish

Wikipedia Abstract

The Virginia opossum (Didelphis virginiana), commonly known as the North American opossum or tlacuache in Mexico, is the only marsupial found in North America north of Mexico. A solitary and nocturnal animal about the size of a domestic cat, and thus the largest opossum, it is a successful opportunist. It is familiar to many North Americans as it is often seen near towns, rummaging through garbage cans, or lying by the road, a victim of traffic.
