In January, AUSTRALIAN GEOGRAPHIC contributor Alasdair McGregor made the case for welcoming possums into our backyards. Here’s what you had to say:

Remember that humans are taking over their habitat, not the other way round. We have to share with them.

Any possum that visits my deck at night gets two Granny Smiths.
I have possums in my backyard and feel quite privileged to share my yard with them.
