Jasmine alerted us to the presence of an intruder last night in her usual manner (by barking like a crazy dog).
Just on the other side of the tree line we found a possum. A.k.a. a Virginia Opossum (Didelphis virginiana), a.k.a. North America's only native marsupial.
He didn't roll over and play dead, but he sure did a good job at playing frozen.
