Mockery is what the possums would call it
Possums would call it “Playing Normal.”
Doin’ what comes natcherly!
Possums call it “Life!”
In my work, those who didn’t do anything, we said that they were “playing possum”.
LOL! That’s a great question!
They call it “staying alive”… ;-)
We have a possum on our property. We put food out at the edge of the woods for him. We want him to stay around. Among other things possums eat ticks. Pete, as we call him, is friendly with our cat.
The possums call it “playing goat”
Isn’t it “opossum” ?
Possums simply call it ‘playing dead’.
Sounds like something I would have asked.
No offense to Pogo Possum of his old comic strip.
Species-ist. I thought we were past such behavior, People.
Possums call it “playing roadkill.”
“Playing human,” of course.
Possums don’t call it.. They are too busy playing dead and chit chat would give the game away.
That is one of life’s great questions that we will never know the answer to.
Anything humans do (like, putting food away or going into your nest to pee) is probably “plain stupid” to a possum.
Playing Opossum. Hog snakes do it to. They roll over on their back showing their corpse pale bellies. If you should flip them back on their stomachs they will return to the belly up position. Hog nose snakes are harmless.
Opossums call it, “predators are stupid and fall for this trick every time”.
That is opossum when spelled correctly.
In this story, they would’ve called it “injured cabin boy”. It’s a case by case basis, you see.
They call it, “Chhhhhhhhh!”
