Nutria rat?

Looks like a possum, or Virginia oppossum if you prefer. America’s marsupial.

Opposum is much uglier than that

Here’s one that visited my yard a while back with her little ones.

One got trapped in my garage and ate the wires to the safety sensors for the garage door opener. Probably trying to keep warm.

I’ve trapped over 100 possum in my back yard. They ravage my melons and peppers. I take them to a much wilder area across the Ft Bend tollroad

Years ago a heard a ruckus in the backyard late at night. I got out of bed and poked my head out the back door. I didn’t have my glasses on so I couldn’t really see details, but looked like my dogs were playing tug of war with a dirty diaper. (We had a crazy dog who liked to jump the fence and come back with random smelly garbage, and it was dirty diapers on more than one occasion).

I turned on the light and walked over to the dogs to break them up, and realized it wasn’t a dirty diaper they were playing tug of war with, it was a possum!

I put the dogs up in the house so I could go outside and dispose of the carcass…but when I went back out, possum was gone. That crazy-ass dog had brought home a live possum!!!

I love possums. The original lurkers.
