Do you know how scary looking possums are when they are scared/angry? They have a BIG mouth and some rather gnarly looking teeth. And they make scary noises. I thought possums played dead. Not this one. S/he turned around to face her attacker head on. I was really hoping that they moved slow like I had heard since I had to get within 2 feet of it to get Jewel away from it. And she had no intention of going anywhere so I had to pick her up and carry her in. Then go back outside to get Hydro who came over to see what was going on and seemed a bit too interested in the possum. The possum was bigger. Sigh..... I'm pretty sure the possum would have beaten them both.
