Was it murder? Or death by natural causes? We many never know.
There's one thing for sure, this one won't be talking.
He's not play'n possum anymore.
No opossum was hurt in the making of this blog post- he was already dead. My assumption is by natural causes since his bones have not been disturbed since summer. I came across them while checking out the garden today. As strange as it may sound to some of you, the kids enjoy looking at our found bones, learning how the skeletons are put together and which bones make up what part.
