Cicadas were less common in the diet of the opossum (Didelphis
virginiana), white-footed mouse, eastern mole (Scalopus aquaticus) and eastern chipmunk (Tamias striatus).
Observers continually scanned the area adjacent to each side of the roadway to the extent of their vision using spotlights (100,000 cp) and recorded the total number of individuals observed of the following species: raccoon, ringtail (Bassariscus astutus), Virginia opossum (hereafter opossum; Didelphis
virginiana), skunk (striped and hog-nosed [Conepatus mesoleucus] skunks were not differentiated), gray fox (Urocyon cinereoargenteus), red fox (Vulpes vulpes), coyote (Canis latrans), bobcat (Lynx rufus), badger (Taxidea taxus), mink (Mustela vison), spotted skunk (Spilogale gracilis and S.
albiventris showed a varied diet, composed of vertebrates, invertebrates and fruits, although fruits and arthropods were the main items in the diet, when the combined samples of the two areas are taken into consideration (Table 1).

Twenty-nine road-killed opossums (Didelphis

We also captured Virginia opossums (Didelphis
virginiana) and American badgers (Taxidea taxus), which were also radio-collared when possible.
virginiana (9-11) and Didelphis
albiventris (12-15)) are the only known definitive hosts.
