A not-so-sexy subject, yet one that we thought these critters deserve as they are definitely a part of life in the south! Opossums or “white beast” are actually a help to gardeners because they eat pests like beetles and slugs, and also help control tick populations. If you’re ready, try some Arkansas Possum Pie: https://bit.ly/3tYS59l “Why the Possum Has a Large Grin” https://amzn.to/3u0iZ0I The armadillo, pronounced ‘arm-a-dill-ah’ has also migrated this way and you’ll see them mostly as roadkill in the south. The armadillo is a common member of the wildlife that occupies our community and they are protected by an armor shell that appears leathery.
