    I wouldn’t eat possum. They are tick magnets...then they pick off the ticks and eat them. Estimations are a single possum will eat 4,000 or so ticks per season. I’ll take a few stupid, hissing marsupials over Lyme disease any day.

    It probably tastes like creamed chipped beef on toast.
    or cream of chicken soup.

    Squirrel Heads and Gravy

    Many birds including turkeys and guineas eat up to 200 ticks per day.
