Many of Maryland's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Maryland's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Talbot county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Easton animal control for wildlife issues.

Easton Wildlife Removal Tip: All about the opossum tail, and what it is used for

The tail of an opossum is very useful. This is also because it served as its primary tool. Especially when climbing the trees, it cannot successfully do it without its tail. In regard with the characteristics of its tail, it is found to be very flexible, long and hairless. It's that one essential element that makes it capable of doing things.

In addition to that, an opossum climbs trees in order for it to stay away from its predators. And, just imagine if it has no tail. It might have already been eaten or killed by these animals. It also makes it easy hunting foods in the nests of birds.

Opossum does not hang Using its Tails in Trees

It should be understood by a lot of people that an opossum is not exactly what it is in cartoons. It does not usually hang its tail from the trees. That is because of the fact that it could not keep its weight just by its tail over a long time. Moreover, it likes playing its game hanging using its tail. However, this is just for only a short period of time. This is not something that can be observed until its adulthood.

Tail Helps It Move from the Branches

Apart from climbing the trees, its tail is very handy in moving from the branches. It can keep in balance during the period of descending and climbing. It also uses its tail during running, walking and balancing. It is also once noted that it carries leaves and grass to its nest. This only means to say that its tail can have its specific purposes.

Tail Can Help Organize Itself

The best thing about its tail is that it helps an opossum to stay organized. It can also use its tail for different activities that include climbing, balancing, carrying things and running. As mentioned, it can hang from branches as long as it attached its tail. This only shows how it is very playful as an animal. This only means that it is a skillful and capable rodent. It can use its tail efficiently and effectively. Its tail is indeed its remarkable quality.

Opossum is Not Intelligent

An opossum is not intelligent and is quite sluggish. If it is captured on daytime, it will not usually fight back. It does not fight back even if it is caught by its neck. This is somehow a bad strategy particularly if it is captured by a big predator.

Now, you have learned all about the opossum's tail and what it is used for!
