Hot Fudge Ask The Expert

Postby susanarosa » Tue May 19, 2009 5:31 pm

So, Fyfe and I had this conversation a few weeks ago, but what are those furry brown animals that always end up as roadkill here in Michigan?

They're definitely not racoons and they don't have tails.

I saw one (alive) last night in my gym parking lot.

Post a pic (of the animal in question) and I'll get it ID'd.

Definitely not possums, the face isn't as pointy and they don't have rat tails.

Koalas.
Clearly if I had the needs and funding I would surely invest here and become the change Detroit needs.

I suddenly pictured myself on a snipe hunt in my gym's parking lot with my camera phone...

If I don't know what it is, I'm not going to be able to google image much.

And they're not very tiny bears, either.
