You can find the Opossums just about anywhere in West Virginia. Opossums are solitary, nocturnal hunters and when they are preyed upon by coyotes, foxes, large owls and bobcats, the opossum defend themselves with their teeth or may pretend to be dead, the opossum draws its lips back, revealing the needle sharp teeth, drools, and looks dead.
The opossum is more solitary and are usually only active at night. It feeds on a variety of vegetables, fruits and other foods, including rats, mice, frogs, birds,insects, small rabbits, nuts, eggs and dead and decaying flesh of animals. Opossum gait is slow and awkward. Both legs move on the same side simultaneously so this make them very slow and easily caught by predators.
