Hi Emily! This was washed up last week on a beach in Santa Barbara, California. Any idea of what it could be?
That is one nasty looking Virginia opossum.
Sidenote: pictures/images of dead things/dissections will be tagged #dead thing, so if you don’t want to see that sort of stuff on my blog (why wouldn’t you, really) you can now block them from your dash (I will cry a little bit but I understand).
