Virginia Opossum

Poppy is our Virginia Opossum who was brought to our Wildlife Rehabilitation Hospital. Upon examination, our vet staff and medical team discovered Poppy has no tail.

Opossums use their tail like an extra hand or foot. Since Poppy’s tail was missing—likely due to a traumatic injury—her chances of surviving in the wild were very slim, so she will live out her days here at Lindsay. Is it “o-possibility” you will adopt her?
