Do possums sleep upside down like bats?

    No, that’s really an urban myth. While young possums can and occasionally do hang upside down by their tails, this behavior decreases in frequency as they get older and heavier. Also, they never do it consistently as a specialized sleeping behavior — they’re likely simply to curl up in a safe place. Their tails aren’t strong enough to hold them like that for an extended rest — it’s mostly a climbing aid.
