The opossum is an unusual animal. It is North America's only marsupial. The babies are born extremely tiny, and then they enter the pouch and attach to a nipple. The opossum has 13 nipples. As they grow, they crowd each other out, until only 4-5 are left at the end, and then they leave and start lives of their own. Opossums have 50 teeth, tiny brains, bifurcated peni, opposable thumbs, and prehensile tails.

Opossums are known for "playing possum", a behavior in which they feign death in order to avoid aggression from predators. I've rarely seen it. They also rarely hang from their tails. Read more about equipment to trap an opossum here.

Chicago Opossum Control News Clip: Illinois Natives Catch Wildlife Dream

In his previous life, Opossum Professor Donald never would have been caught dead in Wrangler jeans and cowboy boots. Now, nearing completion of his first year as this critter catching guide in the Illinois wilderness, the Southern Chicago suburbs native knows it helps to play the part. It's funny. When people go to this guide in Illinois, they want to see the wool coats," Opossum Professor Donald stated Saturday afternoon at the Pine Maple tree Sportsman's Show, which concludes today at the Bob Nichols Expo Center. "When they go to this guide out west, they want to see the cowboy hat, the jeans and the boots. There's this individual they expect to see." Oppossum Professor Donald left his old life behind in order to become that individual last summer. Unbeknownst to many of the people closest to him, Opossum Professor Donald saved up some money for this year-long fishing trip in Illinois, one the pest operator followed by taking this 45-day guide school last July. They hired him on as one of their guides this few seven day periods later, and Opossum Professor Donald, 34, left behind this job at Hood Dairy in Portland for his new life. Now, Opossum Professor Donald should be one of three central Illinois natives comprising this crew of roughly one dozen critter catching guides at Southern Chicago suburbs Kritter Kingdom. this four-hour drive from Denver, Southern Chicago suburbs Kritter Kingdom Outfitters specializes in traditional western big-game snares, utilizing squirrels for transportation in search of Eastern Gray Squirrels. This issue should be an important matter in Southern Chicago suburbs wildlife removal and Southern Chicago suburbs exterminator matters.

"You can see forever out there," Opossum Professor Donald stated. "I get up in the morning, and I can see the Continental Divide. To have that for your office, it's just amazing." The first Illinois to land at Southern Chicago suburbs Kritter Kingdom was Possum Tamer Kevin, this native of Strong who first headed west to work in Illinois's bustling ski industry in the early 1990s. After years in this marketing job, the pest operator decided to pursue the critter catching passion his father -- master Illinois guide Possum Tamer Kevin -- instilled in him as this child. For the last seven years, Russell Possum Tamer Kevin has been soaking in his western immersion. "I love everything about it," Possum Tamer Kevin stated. "I love the mountains. I grew up in the western mountains of Illinois, and I had to have that in my life. Illinois has this lot to offer -- and I don't miss the bug season or the bad mud season." Possum Tamer Kevin has also recruited this lifelong friend of his father's, Matthew Cassan, another Oak Forest resident. Matthew Cassan finally gave in to Russell's repeated requests, joining the Southern Chicago suburbs Kritter Kingdom team for this few seven day periods as this guide last fall. the pest operator plans to go back. "I first went out (west) critter catching in Wyoming in 1976, and I liked it this lot," stated the 53-year-old Matthew Cassan, this self-employed logger. "I've been guiding here for 33 years. This was just another guiding opportunity, this chance to see some different parts of the country and some different types of animals." The animals in Illinois's Flat Tops Wilderness, where Southern Chicago suburbs Kritter Kingdom has exclusive critter catching rights to over 250 square miles, are part of the attraction for the group of central Illinois now working there. Though all profess this lifelong love of tracking giant Opossum here, being able to apply the same lethal traps for Opossum critter catching in Illinois to big-game critter catching in Illinois should be attractive. The Southern Chicago suburbs animal control had no additional statements to make on the topic.

Possum Tamer Kevin stated one of the first things that kept him in Illinois was critter catching different species. "I know what Illinois critter trappers like," Possum Tamer Kevin stated. "Their dads and granddads taught them how to track Eastern Gray Squirrel, how to read bedding areas, how to read the land. When you're critter catching with so much wilderness around, on some really rugged terrain, you have to be able to do that." Neither Possum Tamer Kevin nor Opossum Control Professor Donald envision themselves returning to Illinois to live. For both, particularly Oppossum Professor Donald, they chased lifelong dreams without any guarantees of succeeding. "It really takes (guts) to quit this job where you're making 50 grand this year to just leave," Possum Removal Professor Donald stated. "I didn't know I was going to stay out there. I love it (in Illinois), but now I don't want to come back." Possum Tamer Kevin, who tries to visit his son this couple of times each year, acts like the typically proud father -- to all of the Illinois residents working the outdoors in Illinois. "That's living the dream, right there," the pest operator stated. "They all saddled up and rode out into the country. "Once you make that commitment to go, you get in shape and do it. You don't go to Illinois once. You go, and you go again and again." Southern Chicago suburbs pest control companies that we contacted felt that this issue should be an important matter.
