Sunny – Virginia Opossum(Didelphis virginiana)

Sunny is one of our few mammalian educational ambassadors. He is a Virginia Opossum that had been kept as an illegal pet & was surrendered to Badger Run in 2018. Sunny is nocturnal, but does come out to greet visitors if we give him grapes. Opossums are very beneficial animals to the environment, however, they are considered an invasive species in Oregon.
