Chimney Rock gets new resident
Chimney Rock State Park has a new animal ambassador — Oscar the opossum, who was born with no eyes.
When he first arrived at the park, Oscar, a juvenile opossum, was nervous as he explored his new surroundings, but he’s warming up more each day. Despite not being able to see, he climbs around his enclosure and explores even the highest areas with confidence. Oscar and his opossum friend Ossie live outside at the Animal Discovery Den on warm days and also appear in various animal programs.
