    LOCAL WILDLIFE

    OPOSSUMS: Take a good look at the cat in the field, because chances are, it's not a cat, but an opossum. Opossums look like large rodents and are just as crafty. Not an animal you want to encounter close up. You have probably heard of "playing possum." It means pretending to be dead, asleep, ill or unaware. When a possum is cornered or scared, it will sometimes fall over and its tongue will hang out of its mouth so that it appears to be dead. Possums are not actually playing at all. When faced with a threat, they go into a brief nervous shock, or faint. This response apparently works because, when opossums "play dead" many predators lose interest. The possum usually wakes up in a minute or so and heads for cover.

     

    CICADA KILLERS: No, they are not dangerous wasps, but actually they are known as " The Cicada Killer." This wasp ranks most formidable in appearance of any wasp in the state, It is an exceptionally large species, often exceeding 1.5 inches in length, Nests are dug in open areas such as lawns and pastures, usually in aggregations. Walking by a host of these wasps will cause no reaction, but always be respectful; if you provoke them, they will return the favor.

     

     

     

     ARMADILLOS: These strange looking animals are not indigenous to Missouri, but have taken hold and are here to stay. Most people have not seen a live armadillo, as they are known to sleep upside down on the road. These funny adaptations of nature startle easy and jump when frightened, thus it is dangerous for them when they wander under a vehicle on the road.
