I have seen some mostly black back in the day when I Coon-Possum hunted, we called them Black jack Possums. Have also caught several albino Opossums back then also...those were some fun times back in the 70's! -0078

I bet that is the first opossum that taxidermist has ever mounted! Would like to see a photo though.
