One opossum can kill and eat some 5,000 ticks in a single season!


Opossums are like Blade. Creepy nocturnal assholes that you don’t want to bump into in a dark alley, but also our best defense against the blood-suckers.


As someone who had Lyme Disease and doesn’t want it again, I’m a BIG fan of opossums! They’re fighting the good fight!


The other 10 percent they leave alive to tell the otger ticks what the fuck happened.


and wolf spiders are bros and eat wasps.
