Considered one of the world's oldest mammals, the Opossum (aka Possum) has evolved relatively little over time. What's most likely kept the species alive and thriving down through the ages is ironically their ability to "play dead.
Opossum employs a strategic plan of refusing to argue or fight and uses appearances to its advantage and has the ability to project a certain appearance for its own benefit. To see Opossum indicates that something may not be what it appears to be. You need to dig deep and look for the hidden meaning of situations.
