Additional Information

The opossum, the only marsupial in the Americas, is a true link to the very earlest mammals - and a real survivor.  It is found over almost all of Texas.

The "playing 'possum" story is true.  Whether it is aware of putting on an act of death or if it goes into a kind of catatonic shock from fear, it certaily fools many attackers into believing it is dead and into leaving it alone.

This image is from the Charles Beckendorf Texas Wildlife book. The original was an acrylic painting on canvas (1992) and the size is approximately 14 X 11 inches.  The total edition size of this print is 500.


This is a part of the Texas Wildlife Art Prints Collection.


Color Reproduction

Beckendorf color reproductions are developed using four color process printing on fine white paper. This advanced technique utilizes separate color plates for each of the primary colors, plus black. High-resolution digital scans and special process inks are utilized to yield beautiful, accurate reproductions.

About the Artist - Charles Beckendorf

Charles grew up in Mathis, Texas, where he had the opportunity to spend hours on large ranches. Generous land owners gave him permission to wander freely over their ranches and he observed creatures in their natural surroundings. He developed a lifelong love of nature, whether it be in the tiniest of flowers or the largest of animals. It was at this time that he became a true naturalist.
