Premium quality North American Opossum. Dyed over natural in a wide variety of brilliant colours. Opossum is a great substitute for rabbit. Unlike rabbit it does not absorb water, which means that Opossum zonker strips are much easier to cast than rabbit strips. Opossum hides are quite thin and therefore easier to tie with less bulk. We sell the Opossum in patches of approximately 1/6 of a hide. Depending on the size of the hide. The use of hide patches allows you to cut your zonker strips the way you want; narrow/wide strips, flags, cross, etc.
