Possum” And “Opossum

Possum And Opossum

The most famous marsupial of the moment is Heidi, the cross-eyed opossum from Germany. Heidi has made headlines across the globe and has over 200,000 fans on Facebook. Enough with the cuteness, and on to a great story of language: What is the difference between possum and opossum? The answer is more complex and interesting than you might think.

The opossum received its name in the early 1600s from Captain John Smith of the Jamestown colony in Virginia. The name is derived from aposoum, a Virginia Algonquian word meaning “white beast.” The first recorded reference to the opossum in literature came in 1610 in the following passage from A True Declaration of the Estate of the Colonie in Virginia: “There are … Apossouns, in shape like to pigges.” In the late 1700s, Sir Joseph Banks, a naturalist who accompanied Captain James Cook on his first great voyage, likened a furry creature he saw in Australia to “an animal of the Opossum tribe.” The term for the ringtail marsupial that he spotted was shortened to possum. This truncation of the original term may explain why many people are surprised to learn that opossum and possum are in fact two very different marsupial species of the arboreal kind.

Possessing a furry tail, the true possum belongs to the Phalangeridae family within the Marsupialia order and is primarily found in New Guinea, Australia, Indonesia and other islands in the Pacific region. There are many varieties of possums, including Gliders and Cuscus, while the opossum is a more limited species. With their signature bare tail, the opossum is North America’s only known marsupial; this means the animal carries its young in a pouch much like the Australian kangaroo. Both the possum and the opossum are nocturnal, nomadic omnivores and live on an expansive diet that includes insects, frogs, birds, snakes and fruits. The opossum is primarily dark gray in color but some resemble cinnamon, and, as in Heidi’s case, white opossums are known to exist. The possum is primarily gray in color. The possum and the opossum are both hunted animals and possess an instinct to play dead, or “play possum” when threatened.

Whether the sharp-toothed furry critter who rustles around outside your garbage cans at night is a possum or an opossum may simply come down to where you are in the world.

Main Huge Wasp Nest

This was a Wasp nest found in a Massey back yard in 2005. It was 40 ft (12m) up this pine tree and the nest was 12ft (3.6m) long and 8ft (2.4m) round. It had got so big a part of it had collapsed to the ground, this piece was 15ft by 15ft (4.5x4.5m) Being so close to homes it was a serious danger to nearby residence and animals. Deciding how to treat the nest and keeping the residence safe was my priority. To help stop the wasps from flying to nearby houses, this job would be treated at dusk when wasps would be home. We asked the local Hobsonville Fire Department to lend a hand. The fire department added a little bit of insecticide into their foam and using their powerful hose they foamed the nest until it was saturated. This stopped any wasp from escaping the nest. The nest got so heavy a big part of it broke off and fell to the ground. This job was a huge success with the help of our local Hobsonville Fire Department, This job was one in a life time and we were so proud that no-one or animal were stung while the nest was being treated.
