The Wildlife of Somerville, Massachusetts: The most densely populated city in the state.

Look what was lurking in my yard this morning. A GIANT opossum. I will call animal control about it tomorrow. They are normally nocturnal, so this one lumbering around in broad daylight was a bit of cause for alarm. A nocturnal animal that wanders around during the day is generally not a healthy animal.

From a distance, it looks like a giant rat, but in the pictures, she looks rather cute. She seemed completely unimpressed by my presence. She merely waddled behind my garage and disappeared into a drainpipe.

Missing a pet rabbit? We had a major event this week with a long eared domestic rabbit wandering around behind the hospital, until somebody grabbed it and brought it in.

Not many skunk, possum & raccoon events lately.
