The Virginia Opposum or it's latin name Didelphis virginiana is a remarkable tiny surviver but it holds a bigger secret to it's survival other than
it's already amazing survival techniques.... It cannot be poisoned by bits or stings.
The secret that makes it immune to venom/poisons of the animal kingdom is a key biological ingredient in it's immune system LTNF
Lethal Toxin Neutralizing Factor or LTNF is an anti-toxin that can neutralize 90% of all known snake poisons even poison from the deadly Australian
inland Taipin arguably the deadliest venomous snake in the world not only that it can totally stop the effects of ricin.
Amazing isn't it but that is not the end of it....
When scientists tested this anti-toxin in mice,rats and small mammals they noticed that it has the same anti-toxin effects that the substance has in
All together the Opposom has probably the strongest immune system in the animal kingdom, It can maintain it's body at 34 degrees centigrade that in
return helps it stop any germs successfully breeding in it's body it is immune to a variety of diseases and on top of this it has a miracle gift
called LTNF...Something mankind can use.
Someday and someday soon mankind will not need to fear snake bites, scorpion stings or any other poisonous/venomous substance that could damage or
kill us and we will have the Opposum to blame for that
