Meet Pocket, the Virginia opossum!

Opossums (order Didelmorphia) are North America's only marsupial - a mammal who raises their young in a pouch. Pocket got her name from the built-in pocket she has!

Pocket lives in the Barnyard at Sequoia Park Zoo and can often be found napping in her peek-a-boo cubby den. When not asleep, she spends her time foraging for food and visiting campers to teach them about opossums and local wildlife.
