OK, so that meme you’ve read that says opossums eat thousands of ticks a day? It’s not true. Turns out, that information came from a study of captive opossums, but when researchers checked with wild opossums, numerous studies found no evidence of tick eating. That means they are not our answer to lyme disease.
Still, they’re interesting creatures and if you ever have a pet opossum, you just might want to know about proper massage techniques. So, here you go! And don’t forget to sweep out the aura!!
