| If you find a dead opposum, check
to see whether or not it has a pouch filled with babies. These are attached
to the mother's nipples, but can be gently popped off with your thumb.
Place them in a cloth-lined box, and take them to a licensed wildlife
If you find young opossums that are seven or more inches long, have good
balance, and seem in good condition, they are probably on their own, so
it is best to leave them alone. If the animal is thin injured or is a
smaller baby, follow FWC's general emergency instructions
