Yes, yes, I grew up in Louisiana. I know possums. They are so cute lined up on a tree limb hanging by their tails in order of size, sleeping.

But, at night, if you happen to run across one unexpectedly, the hiss will raise the hair on your head.

LOL

Well, that's true. That hiss is pretty loud, especially at night.

I have one that comes to my back door every night. I feed him peanuts in the shell, one at a time. He or she even lets me scratch her between the ears. Cute critter. My cats just ignore it, or walk up and sniff noses with it.

I've even picked up wild ones that were on the street where they were likely to get run over. You just grab em by the armpits and carry them somewhere else. Put 'em down, and they wander off in a new direction. Stupid, but amusing.
