t3knomanser: verbal_jizm: They could say that opposums are highly unlikely to have rabies, which is true, as they are very resistant,

Resistance, nothing. Small mammals are very unlikely to have rabies. To contract rabies, you have to a) be bitten by a rabid animal, b) survive the bite. Cats, rats, bats, and other small mammals are generally pretty unlikely to catch rabies simply because the rabid animal will just tear them apart.


I was going to contradict you regarding bats, but fortunately I read the CDC page first. Bats seem to be in the same boat as humans - they may get rabies, but it's not common. Not worth taking the risk by handling a bat without gloves, but then again it's not worth worrying about being bitten by a rabid bat.

I like bats. They get a bad rap.

t3knomanser: basemetal: /if a possum scares you, you sound like a city dweller

Have you ever been to a city? I know the noise and crowds must terrify you, but possums thrive in cities, much like every other animal that can eat garbage. Seriously, they're nearly as plentiful as squirrels, you just never see them because they're nocturnal.


Yeah, lived in a couple of large cities, possums are right up there with those vicious squirrels in scaryness factor.

MoronLessOff: I almost nailed one just the other night. An opossum that is, not a hot hillbilly.


Speaking of nails what the hell is up with that woman's nails?

The term "grinning like a possum eating grapes" comes to mind.

So far only two people in this thread seem to understand that you spell opposum with two o's.

verbal_jizm: Britney Spear's Speculum: Perhaps the most misunderstood creature, very gentle and docile by nature. They only act mean in their defense mode, given the chance, they will flee. Excellent at killing mice, snakes, and other pest. They are good for the environment and should not be feared and do not carry rabies.

I'm sure the writer's ignorance about the way rabies is carried makes the rest of their claim true.

They could say that opposums are highly unlikely to have rabies, which is true, as they are very resistant, but it's not impossible for them to contract it.


Thank you for being the only person in this thread to spell opposum correctly.

Yeah I am not sure if cute is a word I would describe a giant marsupial rat. Those things are evil in the wild. I have had my fair share of run ins with them and I know them things are mean and dirty and destructive.
