STO questions

Postby Critter » Thu Aug 09, 2018 11:01 am

hey pals im the proud parent to a really cute short tailed opossum his name is Mako.

I have a few questions i cant find too many answers for

1) what portion of treats should i feed him? Are there any fruits he cant have

2) what should the consistancy of there poop be like

3) best way to keep there odor at bay, i noticed after last night his poop was runnier than it was the day before and the room has a big ammonia smell even after wiping the cage with vinegar

4)best ways to tame him? He's a.little shy still.

All in all I'm just looking for a community to reach out too with these questions and also to show off my boy.

The Cincinnati Zoo feeds their STOs "Nebraska Feline Diet (NFD), mealworms, crickets, banana." So I would assume then that banana is a good fruit for them to eat.
