“One cannot think well,
love well, sleep well,
if one has not dined well.”
— Virginia Woolf
“The more colorful the food, the better. I try to add color to my diet, which means vegetables and fruits.” — Misty May-Treanor
Most known for its tendency to play dead when experiencing intense fear, the opossum eats a wide variety of foods. While its primary dishes are small rodents, insects, worms, frogs and birds, it also enjoys vegetables, berries, fruit, nuts and garbage.
