    I've hated raccoons since I caught one digging up fresh graves in a pet cemetery. Clearly they weren't deep enough but have some fricking respect.

      Hey man, it's dead matter, either way it gets returned to life, be it either subterranean decomposers, or surface dwelling scavengers.

      They’re crumby animals in general, I get they look ‘cute’ but most people I’ve met have had negative experiences with them

        Does anyone know how the ecology of that trio works when they’re out in the wilderness without trash to eat? It just seems like their niches overlap too much to coexist with a limited food supply.

          I've seen videos of opossums choke slamming skunks, so I'd imagine they don't really get along under normal circumstances

              It's because skunks are ambush predators. They need to take time aim. This is like an archer being confronted with a swordsman. Of course the one adapted to close range combat will win.

          This is pure uneducated guesswork but I figure raccoons are superior scavengers, skunks are able to repel predators, and possums have pig sized litters. So in a period of food scarcity and few threats the coon will prosper, but when food becomes abundant the possums have a higher potential maximum rate of population growth, and when the increase in scavengers is followed by an increase in their predators skunks will be less affected.

    Opossums don't eat ticks except in a controlled laboratory setting where there's nothing else to eat. Wild ones don't eat ticks.

    It's like the infamous cat piss experiment. lab rats did not enter areas with cat piss. However, wild rats do, and instead of fricking off they alter their scavenging behavior only if they smell cat piss plus one other predator. if it's only cat piss they only change their paths to stay out of sight, but don't alter their scavenging behavior, and under no circumstance do they just leave, other than being killed. Regardless a buch of "studies show" midwits latched on to it immediately and there was a failed ratting cat revival attempt, which seemed to work because the rats altered their paths to stay out of sight. Then people noticed the rats were still there, they put the cats back in, and cat tree sales skyrocketed.

      Iirc, that particular experiment wasn’t about opossums seeking out ticks, it was about comparing the grooming behaviors of different animals. Opossums noticed most of the ticks crawling on them and ate them. The squirrels in the same experiment didn’t care about being covered in ticks and barely bothered trying to remove the ones on them.

        is just another extension of culture war brain rot. The right wing, especially the religious sorts, don't like the fact that scientists generally disagree with them and they really don't like the fact that those scientists regularly publish work showing that their personal beliefs are factually incorrect.

        The current response to this sort of thing is to declare that scientific research is false and misleading and there's no way to definitively know anything. They love this because their entire worldview is faith-based. Unfortunately, they're also moronic so anyone with a brain will instantly recognize their bullshit disingenuous pilpul tactics, as
