Summary: 
A Virginia Opossum (Didelphis virginiana) sketched by famed German artist Gustav Mutzel in 1927. Didelphis species are large (up to ∼5 kg), with a broad distribution and cosmopolitan diet. Some seem to have taken advantage of urban sprawl, and the food that humans inadvertently provide them, to increase their range. The Virginia Opossum is the only marsupial in the USA, occurring as far north as Canada on the North American continent. With prehensile tails and opposable ‘grasping’ thumbs, they appear as comfortable in trees as on the ground. Source: Gustav Mutzel.
