sorry for grossing you out.

I can't believe I haven't posted this photograph yet. I took it about a year ago. Its a dead deer with a dead possum inside the dead deer's abdominal cavity. Just like a tur-duck-en! How did it get there?

Three Guesses

1. The possum was eating from the deer carcass when, suddenly, the carcass was hit by a drunk driver...instantly killing the possum while giving him a free dead deer coffin.

2. The possum was eating intestines and died of old age.

3. A deer ate a possum for some reason and died when the possum tried to tear its way out. Just like in Aliens.

Isn't nature beautiful?


  1. agh. possums are too ugly to live anyway.

  2. possums are hideous.

    maybe it crawled in there for warmth and then died of cold.

  3. I hope you don't mind that I posted this. I am so amazed with it. I gave you credit, hope it's okay.

  4. I don't mid at all, friend. Thanks for giving me credit.

  5. it died because the deer was poisoned.
    The deer would retain the poison that was not digested in it's stomach. When the opossum ate it, it died.
