Meet Pele, the Brazilian Short-Tailed Opossum…

Brazilian Short-Tailed Opossums are marsupials with a prehensile tail that live mostly in rainforest environments in South America. They are omnivorous with a diet consisting of fruit, insects, frogs, and other small prey. Short-tailed opossums are nocturnal – they hunt at night with a great sense of smell and hearing, and sleep hidden in nests woven with leaves and bark during the day.
