“Possum” can refer to two different types of animals. In the US, “possum” is often used as a shorter version of “opossum.” However there are also animals in Austalia called possums.
All of these animal share taxonomy down through class mammalia (mammals). But this is where they split. Opossums and possums are both marsupials. Opposums belong to the order Didelphimorphia and possums belong to the order Phalangeriformes. Rabbits belong to the order Lagomorpha.
Not closely. Although both are mammals, rabbits are lagomorphs while opossums are marsupials.
