Washington DC wildlife control tip of the month: Are opossums dangerous to people? - When you are dealing with an animal that is considered wild, for example like the opossum, it makes sense to have all the knowledge surrounding the creature, not only to make understanding its habits easier in a bid to catch it, but also to protect yourself against something that could be fairly unpredictable. The opossum may look like a strange and scary creature, but in reality it is just a wild animal looking for its next meal and a warm, safe environment to lay their heads after a hard night of foraging for food. When you look beneath the ugly exterior, with its sharp claws and plentiful teeth, you have an animal that is probably more scared of you than you are of it. One of the many things that the opossum can do to avoid a fight with a predator that is much bigger than it is, such as us humans, is to play dead. This is a coined phrase these days, and many people believe the origins to be a myth, but this playing dead is actually something that is completely out of the control of the animal. Believed to be something triggered in the brain when the animal feels scared, the play dead can last from a few minutes right up to more than a few hours, and it is an action designed to confuse a threat or predator into believing it has won the battle and effectively leave the opossum alone. Of course this is something that you are going to need to take into consideration when facing an opossum - it is more likely to run away or play dead than it is to fight back, but you must remember that the animal is still wild, and it could act in an unpredictable nature so caution should always take precedent.
Baby opossum sounds - Have you ever heard the noise that a baby opossum makes? You probably won't have done, because they are tiny creatures, and although they do make noises, especially when they are frightened or calling for their mother, it is usually the mama opossum that you will hear first. As a generality, opossums hiss and growl when threatened. They also make this noise while they are mating, so if you hear this - there is a good chance that kids are on the way! The hiss is often compared to that of a cat when it gets angry, and the growl is something that you may recognize from the calls of the nighttime around your homes, especially if you live in country-side style areas. The babies, although tiny, will make some of the cutest noises you will ever hear. A "choo choo" noise, or one that sounds like a sneeze will be the call they make to their mothers when they are scared or in danger, and you may hear that same hiss that their mothers make, just on a much smaller and cuter scale! When the mother is responding to her babies, you will hear a clicking sound. Again, this clicking sound is the same one made while two adults are mating, so in reality, it could go either way!
Reader mail feedback: Hi Wildlife Removal USA, My name is Mirko and I live in Washington DC. Ive read your articles and was hoping you can shed some of your expertise for me. I saw a raccoon entering my roof through soffit yesterday. I know its been only 1 day since its found my new home. Not sure about babies?? I guess its possible that she transferred them? Will she even kave kits this late in the summer up here??? I was thinking of just placing a live trap on the roof at the entry point and if I catch her inspect the attick for babies. Do male raccoons also enter attics for shelter??? Is it easy to tell female from male?? What are your thoughts?? I think it moved over from my neighbours house and the one next to him over the last 2 weeks. We discovered a mom and some babies living under the house two days ago. Our handyman came and saw the mom and scared her off, then crawled under and searched the entire crawl space - with his dog - and determined that no babies were there. But last night, we heard frantic clawing. Handyman swears there was no place for the babies to hide, so I am wondering if the mom and/or babies may have returned and were clawing from the OUTSIDE to get back in? Seems unlikely.....I really don't want the babies trapped inside with the mom outside.
