What Do Possums Eat?

First, let’s set the record straight: Possums are a species of tree dwelling marsupials native to Australia and the Indonesian islands of New Guinea and Sulawesi. When we talk about possums in North America, we actually mean Opossums. Opossums are the only native marsupials in North America. And, if we are discussing opossums in Canada, we are specifically talking about the Virginia Opossum. Generally the size of a domestic cat, opossums are often misunderstood and vilified, when in fact, they are incredible pest control mechanisms all on their own.

Understanding Opossum Diets

Opossums are omnivorous creatures and opportunistic scavengers and will feed on all sorts of things. Let’s have a closer look at “what do possums like to eat”, shall we?

Natural Diet of Opossums

Opossums are true omnivores; their ability to consume and digest both plant-based and animal-based foods is essential for their survival. Their choice of food likely depends mostly on availability. Additionally, they are known to scavenge carrion and roadkill, making them part of Mother Nature’s clean-up crew.

Insects and Bugs

Opossums play an important role in controlling pest populations with an affinity for beetles and bugs, commonly found in yards, gardens, and wooded areas. Such bugs may include ants, termites, grasshoppers, and crickets. Snails and slugs, high in protein, vitamins, and minerals, are also on the menu for any self respecting opossum. Interestingly, a myth claiming that opossums eat thousands of ticks in a season, may just be that - a myth. A 2021 peer reviewed study found that opossums do not seem to favour ticks at all. 

Fruits and Berries

Their sweet taste and excellent nutritional value make fruits and berries, including apples, grapes, cherries, and blackberries a beloved and important part of the opossum’s diet. Leafy greens and juicy corn kernels are also a welcome addition to the menu.
