Annie was terrified when she found Galileo in the ball so the ball now looks like this
But, since the opossum got out of the ball just fine, Katy and I think the ball should not be labeled “not for opossum use” but rather “not for Annie use”
The San Francisco 49ers go head to head with the Baltimore Ravens, so who is our woodchuck and opossum rooting for?
I have done several posts before on our opossum Galileo.
Recently, he had an agenda of redecorating his bed
Recently, a friend of the Animal Department donated some eggs to feed our animals. The animals that we usually feed eggs to are the bears,wolves,opossums and recently we gave one to the muskrats. In my opinion the opossums love them the most.They are real eager to eat them. Here is a little video I made of Galileo and Sonny Opossum devouring the gifted eggs.
Here is a picture of Galileo opossum. You can see he has a keen eye for design by picking out paint swatches when he visited some museum employees.
He arrived with his brother, Einstein in September of 2011. He and his brother came to us from a rehabber that found them after their mother was killed by a car. They were too used to people and too young to be released. The two later were put into Sonny’s old exhibit in Carolina Wildlife. Sonny was then moved into our EHR and lives in a big playpen. In the beginning the brothers did well living together, but later had to be separated and one moved into the EHR because they started to quarrel too much. Now Einstein and Galileo switch places when the exhibit is super cleaned so you never know who you may see in the exhibit.
Thus far, we are able to find out that Galileo loves to walk around the halls like our old opossum Beaker used to. He also loves to do a clicking noise and is more concerned with scenting and sliming things then he is with trying to find things to eat.
Last year, we had our woodchuck Henry predict the Super Bowl winner. He chose correctly, this year Henry chose the PATRIOTS . I do not have this prediction on video because the camera wasn’t working correctly.
However, I do have our opossum Galileo picking the GIANTS to win. I am really torn on what animal I should support. I am from New York so naturally I should side with Galileo, but Henry is my main woodchuck pal!
Now, the video may look “slightly rigged” because you only see the Giants sign to choose from but, I assure you that even though there is an overwhelming desire for them to win in the Animal Department,he could have easily chosen the PATRIOTS sign on the other side.
To prove this we did the scenario again, this time a little closer. He picked the Giants…AGAIN!
