These baby opossums are having a great time hanging from a branch, showing-off their natural acrobatic skills


Opossums can hang from almost anything with their prehensile tails; particularly handy for their semiarboreal lifestyle. These cheeky marsupials have a clever trick for staying alive: playing dead. This defence mechanism is involuntary, like fainting, and includes method acting tactics like the excretion of foul odours from the anal glands.
