Adult Opossums: If an adult opossum has been hit by a car, and you feel comfortable and safe doing so, check to see if there are babies in its pouch. Viable young can often be saved by wildlife rehabilitators 

Baby Opossums: Baby opossums are born as embryos, barely larger than a bee, and spend about two months nursing in their mother’s pouch. When they get to be about three to four inches long and start riding around on their mother's back, they may fall off without the mother noticing. As a general rule, if an opossum is over seven inches long (not including the tail), they're old enough to be on their own. If they're less than seven inches long (not including the tail), they are likely orphaned and you should contact a licensed wildlife rehabilitator. Please send us a text at 513-409-1331.
