When I was in high school, I had a teacher named Mr. Davis who had a reputation for being an eccentric. I never really noticed until later how much I admired him. Mr. Davis had an amazing ability to entertain his students. He would often tell stories or show movies during class that would often involve the supernatural. I enjoy this list of interesting facts because I think it is a good example of a story Mr. Davis might have told to his class. I am sure he would have been much more entertaining than a teacher today who has to stick with boring, everyday facts. In one of these stories, Mr. Davis tells his students about the life cycle of the opossum. It begins when the mother opossum is pregnant and she eats a large number of earthworms. As the fetus grows inside her, she starts to enjoy this list of interesting facts.
