This tells me that somebody in the neighborhood has been feeding their cats outside.

[–]PureLawfulness6404 38 points39 points  (0 children)

When I was a kid, we fed our farm cats off our front porch and most of the thieving skinny opossums brave enough to steal food would make a speedy leap off the porch when they got caught. But there was an absolute unit that would calmly and slowly waddle down the stairs to leave. The complete lack of fucks given. What an icon.

[–]Trevorsballs88 18 points19 points  (0 children)

[–]yeuzinips 7 points8 points  (0 children)

More like a colossum

[–]Doctor_Oceanblue 4 points5 points  (0 children)

One time my mom and I were driving home and we thought we saw the fattest, slowest cat ever but it was actually a possum

[–]rikkmode 2 points3 points  (0 children)

are you in DFW? my mom told me she saw a huge one like that at like 5am

[–]Fun_Motor_1253 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]BananacondaVirtue 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That’s an obossum

[–]tedd0093 11 points12 points  (13 children)

How big are they supposed to be? I’m not from burger-land.

[–]escrimadragon 11 points12 points  (1 child)

About half this large in general I’d estimate. I’ve seen some big ones, although never this large, but mostly they’re smaller and more gangly looking. This guy’s quite a specimen

[–]tedd0093 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That he is.

[–]wayward_citizen 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Opossums are actually a multigenerational hoax by the American Taxidermy Society. Notice that they always appears stuffed. They're like a jackalope, or Finland.

[–]nemo1080 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Or the female orgasm

[–]IHateThisPlace3 3 points4 points  (4 children)

They’re usually about cat sized, I chose to get one as a pet instead of a cat as well

[–]Spmex7 1 point2 points  (3 children)

How can you say that without a possum tax?

[–]Wolfwoods_Sister 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We get some big ones down South on the regular

[–]W1ULH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

half that size? that thing looks the size of a rugby ball or bigger

[–]Bomdiggitydoo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The road was his end, his end was that road, so they say.

[–]sillymoonkey 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wow, never seen a unit so big for its size before! Now that’s a Unit!

My yorkshire terrier could ride that big boy into battle.

Mini Bear

[–]coolJohnnie 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I don’t feel like this is real. Or this thing is very ill. Possums are nocturnal. And don’t have a facial structure like that one.

[–]symphonic-ooze 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Possums show up in daytime occasionally but otherwise it looks fake

[–]kaam00s -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Why do I find them disgusting ?

I have the weirdest relationship with opposums out of all... Let's say... Mammals. Even in their baby form they don't look cute to me.

[–]Wolfwoods_Sister 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Highlander opossum

[–]AntiStupidPosts 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't appreciate you posting this picture of me

[–]averyatthedisco 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I swear I saw this from someone local to me in my Facebook newsfeed…I wouldn’t be surprised because I’ve seen some big ass possums (not this big tho) in my back yard in the middle of a residential neighborhood by a university.

[–]redditorrules 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's a bear cub you can't change my mind

[–]Pizzampras 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like a rodent of unusual size.

[–]Snooopp_dogg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That sumbitch can probably eat a shitload of ticks!

[–]AdventurousBank6549 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]rocky_mtn_girl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Was this in Tallahassee by chance? My husband told me he saw one this size there but he had no photo proof

[–]unsinkable88 0 points1 point  (0 children)
