Wild Times on Skidaway Island

My blog tour starts October 28th.

Since many of you are romance writers I want to announce that each of my chapters also deals with the love lfe of the topic character.

Didelphis virginiana compensates for its short life with a high birth rate. Mating season lasts from January to July with some opossums having two litters per year. Babies are born within thirteen days of mating, but live in the mother’s pouch for two months after birth. Mom has thirteen nipples in her pouch; a circle of twelve with one in the middle. Usually she has fewer babies, but if more than thirteen deliver, the extra ones don’t survive. Often a mother possum dead on the side of the road has live babies in her pouch, who could survive if rescued by humans.
