Replica Woolly Opossum Skull

SKU: TQ-206
Default Title


The woolly opossum, smaller than its North American relative, is an arboreal species dwelling in forests throughout Central and South America. They are omnivorous and will eat fruits, berries, insects, small vertebrates and carrion. This solitary species makes its home in hollowed trees and is said to use its prehensile tail to carry foliage for bedding. Once heavily trapped for its fur, the woolly possum is now of little economic importance.
