Facts about Rabbits: Once thought to be
rodents, rabbits are now recognized as being

Facts about Opossums: Opossums (commonly
called "Possums") are the only surviving North
American Marsupial. Marsupials are mammals who
care for their young in a pouch. Other
marsupials include Kangaroos, Wallabies,
Tasmanian Devils, Tasmanian Wolves (thought to
be extinct since the last one seen alive was
more than 30 years ago), as well as several
smaller species, most living in Australia.
Australia is also the home of another marsupial
called the Possum, named after the Opossum.
Opossums have more teeth than any other
mammal in the world (not more than any other
ANIMAL, just more than any other MAMMAL).
