Default New Short Tailed Opossum Owner

Hello Everyone! Not sure if I am in the right place but thought I would join in
There isn't much of an active sto community that I could find but this site does have some info and I figured since Sto's and hedgies are both exotic little insectivores (mostly) I might be welcome here
If anyone knows of an active Sto forum though please share!

Call me Willowbast, I'm a first time Sto owner and so far loving it!
(although not new to pets in general we've got cats, dogs, reptiles a russian dwarf hamster and now a short tailed opossum in our house!)

My boyfriend has become curious about hedgehogs since they've popped up so much in my sto research so we may just be joining the hedgehog community before long too!

And my little Sto's name is Luna (picture to come!) she's about 7 weeks old, very playful and adventurous and absolutely adorable!

Looking forward to meeting everyone and chatting about our lovely little exotics

I have never heard of a short tailed opossum, but welcome! Of course we have the wild variety of opossums outside and they are very interesting and cute. How big are the sto's as you call them? Pictures would be great.
What do you feed Luna?

Hey, we just had a thread about STOs! From the thread, it looks like a few hedgehog-caretakers are also short-tailed opossum owners.

Welcome to the forum! If you do eventually want a hedgehog, check out this lovely care guide.
