The diseases you can get from a possum are leptospirosis, tuberculosis, relapsing fever, tularemia, spotted fever, toxoplasmosis, coccidiosis, trichomoniasis, and Chagas disease.

Do your best to stay away from any possums because if they do bite you then you could be infected and if you're bitten by a possum you should go get medical treatment right away so you increase your chances of not getting the diseases from the possum.
