Be sure to tell us what the weather is like in bannination land.

To be fair, Heidi the possum is far more talented than the Hoff.

Taste like chicken.
A bit stringy though.

Cute little fella. My sis has raised dozens of opossums that are brought in to the vet clinic, usually after their mothers are ran over. They're usually pretty nice little critters.

When he was younger, my father would eat the ones he ran over.

I really hate those things. There's something that that naked tail and that dirty-gray fur that just grosses me out.

/don't like raccoons either, but that's because they're such evil clever fiends

The Hoff redeemed himself with the Pingu Dance, IMHO

This intriguing and rare creature will be housed in the "Na und...?" wing of the Zoo, next to the amazing squirrel habitat and formerly home of the widely popular pigeon exhibit.

/they're doing it wrong, which is very un-German
 
2011-01-11 03:50:50 PM  
Other than the cross-eyes that opposum appears much different from those I am used to seeing. Its feet and tail are thicker, whiter fur, less vermin-like. Wonder where it originally came from.

What's a Hoff? Is that German for a Bieber?
 
2011-01-11 04:20:35 PM  
a possum?

really?

I mean WTF? they're dumb, they don't make good pets, and they're neither cute nor tasty. They're actually kinda scary when you startle them and they show all those pointy teeth at you.

Ich kann dieses nicht verstehen.

Not to mention the poo issues.

Plus, they have this annoying habit of invading their neighbors.

My reaction to this thread was like,

"Jesus Christ! Opossums. God those things are nasty, they give me the screaming *click* OMG HAHAHAHA!"

hmph. I'll have you know that I happen to be of mostly German ancestry, have been accused of being "cute" more than a few times, and, well, here's your opportunity to assess tastiness. :P

However, the public will not get their first glimpse of the opossum until July, when the zoo opens its tropical wildlife exhibit.

It's a 'possum, not a rare 5-legged wombat. No wonder the Krauts lost the war. Prolly saw a hedgehog in France and started worshipping it.

SOUTHERN BAKED POSSUM (OPPOSSUM) WITH SWEET TATERS

1 fat possum
Salt & pepper
2 cloves garlic
2 c. water
5 strips bacon
2 lg. onions
1 tbsp. celery leaves
1 lg. can mushrooms
5 lg. sweet taters, cut in halves
3 tbsp. lard
1 tbsp. chopped parsley

Nail head of possum to a board, just a little larger than the possum. Skin it. Make paste of lard, salt, pepper and rub over entire possum. Fill cavity with onions, garlic, chopped parsley and celery leaves. Place possum and board on rack in roasting pan. Lay 5 strips of bacon across breast. Add water and mushrooms. Add water as needed. Surround the possum with sweet taters. Leave uncovered.
Bake in oven (300 to 350 degrees) until tender. Baste every 15 minutes. To determine when done, pull leg away from body. When done, throw away the possum and taters and eat the board.

Why don't I ever see opossums like that? That thing is downright cute. The critters I see out here are ugly and vicious little bastards with huge teeth and claws that tend to attack cats. Had two cats, while growing up, that tangled with them. One of them lost a lot of fur and most of an ear. The other one... well, she was a special cat. Despite being a runt, she had the ability to intimidate any animal of less-than-human intelligence. Just by staring and smacking once with a paw, she's frightened away terriers, a murder-intent pitbull, raccoons, opossums, and any other animal that went within two feet of her.

That cat was decidedly creepy.

Do we have Giant Mutant possums out here on the left coast or does the rest of the world have Tiny Petite possums?

Well, Heidi is from North Carolina.

Salem Witch: I like the picture of Heidi in The Oregonian.

Considering how ugly most of them are in general, this is the queen of the crop :-)

I even think she is cute, and I basically detest them in general. I would sincerely hate it, if asked by someone I know to babysit this critter. I'd be forced to say yes, although my instincts would be to toss it into the nearest drainage ditch.

That's what I mean. Look at the difference between Sophia and Heidi.

The pictures that I have seen of possums from other than the west are smaller than the large snarly things we have here.

One night coming home I saw my neighbors dogs, 2 Golden Retrievers, in a standoff with one possum. One of the dogs had quite a gash on her front shoulder (she was OK).

I wasn't going to get out of my car so I tried to run over the possum put my car between the critters.
