Proper Possum Massage
Just to localize this, the first possum that I ever encountered in the wild was in eastern Colorado, near Bonny Reservoir. This state does have a small population.
If you follow that link, you will find that the Colorado state parks people are allergic to the word "reservoir." It just does not have that recreational connotation. See also "Pueblo Reservoir."
Usage note: A "reservoir" is a manmade lake whose primary purpose is water storage for irrigation and/or flood control. Bonny and Pueblo are both "reservoirs."
