Are opossums native to North America?

Or did they come here from other places?


Answer by  mya (62)

They are native, but their ancestors are perhaps from Asia where the first marsupial fossils where found, 125M years old. Look paleontology sites.

Opossums are native North American mammals. They are marsupials which are very uncommon in North America. They are also not known to carry rabies as easily as raccoons and bats.
