Time for a manicure!

Time for a manicure! Virginia opossum Webster recently had his nails trimmed by NC Aquariums veterinarian Dr. Emily Christiansen. In the wild, an opossum’s nails are worn down naturally as the animal climbs trees and moves through its habitat. Webster is one of the Aquarium’s ambassador animals, and thanks to superb training with Education Animal Aquarist Leslie Vegas, trimming Webster’s nails was a stress-free experience for everyone. Photo by Heather Broadhurst, NC Aquariums Vet Tech
