Common Opossum

Here are a couple of video captures from one of our game cameras on the Big Tree Loop. The first image is of an opossum. Notice the long snout. This does not look like a Common Opossum and yet there are no other candidates I can come up with on the mammal books we have.

The other images is of a Common Opossum carrying leaves with its prehensile tail. Probably busy building a nest. Interesting to see this prehensile tail actually functional!
