Under the Wildlife Act, 1975 Possums are protected. You can not kill possums otherwise legal action can be taken. But possums are a type of animal that commonly comes to our home and their removal is necessary for humans otherwise a major loss you can bear. Possums are extraterritorial and if you catch them then only be released within 50 meters of the area.
The possums can quickly return if they know the entry point. They are normally shy and not confrontational and mainly stare at each other with erect ears to defend territory. They are very fast in-running so that is the reason in the time of blinking eyes they go away from that place.
We know that every animal needs the necessary things which we also need as humans. Possums can also eat moths, birds, and eggs as well as baby birds. They basically like domestic gardens. They can also eat everything from roses like its leaves, its seeds, etc.You can easily see the possum on your roof.
