A possum consists of approximately 70 small-to-medium sized marsupials that are native to Australia, Sulawesi (an island in Indonesia), and New Guinea. They received this name due to their resemblance to opossums, which are native to both North and South America. There are over 103 species of opossums within the Western Hemisphere, which live between 2-4 years, however some can live longer. While you may not know much about these creatures, there’s one thing we definitely know — and that’s how adorable they are!
