Adorable opossums. Instead of caving to the portrayal of possums as terrifying rat-like trash burglars, this collection of adorable possum pictures will change your mind.

The cute possums of the world may carry their young around with them, but they are not carrying disease. In fact, not only are they eight times less likely to carry the disease than wild dogs, they generally enjoy partial or total immunity to snake venom, even from rattlesnakes and cottonmouths. They may also be a bit sharper than you think, as they’ve been proven to be better at remembering the location of hidden food than rats, rabbits, cats, and dogs.

Furthermore, the lovable possum photos below show their friendliness around humans when raised in proper situations. If you look closely at these cute pictures of possums, you’ll realize they really enjoy play, and not the “dead” kind.

Possums and opossums look almost identical, but they are different species however.  Possums are found in Australia, while opossums inhabit the US.
