Ecologists have recently learned something new about opossums. They're a sort of magnet when it comes to riding the world of black-legged ticks, which spread Lyme disease. Several years ago, scientists decided to learn about the part different mammals play in the spread of the ticks and the disease. In the study, they discovered that opossums were remarkably good at getting rid of the ticks. Opossums groom themselves fastidiously, like cats and they find a tick, they lick it off and swallow it. Scientists say that in one season a single opossum can kill up to 5,000 ticks.
