Yep, they are the one's that play dead if they get scared...They look like huge rats!!!and hiss if you scare them. Then, if you attack them they faint and act dead...only I am not EVER gonna attack any rat looking thing that big ever...ever

oh the infamous possums!
euz, i think these are what we call in mexico: tlacuaches!! yes ratas gigantes
of course i never saw one in mexico but when i moved to san diego, there are many around!! my 1st encounter w/1: i was about to call Guinness records, thinking i've seen not just the biggest rat but the ugliest too!!! they have just patches of hair, so they look 1/2 bold and poor things they are really really stupid! i've seen them fighting each other with a fence in between, right outside my door, it takes them hours to realize i won't happen... now soon i will post a pix of 1 i saw a few days ago, they literally step outside my door very often, yikes

so mister atom, have you eat tried them? not that i wanna eat one at all! just curious...

I did try it once. It tastes just like chicken:))))). Seriously, no, I would eat Insky's flat-mate before I'd eat one of those nasty marsupials....eeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. Be careful Bere! They can become quite mean if tested...

Good LORD!
I've never encountered one and doubt I'd live to tell about it if I did. Hard to report an incident when you're dead of a heart attack . . .
