Possum / Lori / Der Nord-Ostsee-Kanal

The Virginia opossum (Didelphis virginiana), commonly known as the North American opossum, is the only marsupial found in North America north of Mexico. In the United States it is typically referred to simply as a possum.

The pygmy slow loris (Nycticebus pygmaeus) is a species of slow loris. It occurs in a variety of forest habitats, including tropical dry forests, semi-evergreen, and evergreen forests. The animal is nocturnal and arboreal, crawling along branches using slow movements in search of prey.

The Kiel Canal (German: Nord-Ostsee-Kanal), known as the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Kanal until 1948,
is a 98-kilometre long freshwater canal in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein.
The canal links the North Sea at Brunsbüttel to the Baltic Sea at Kiel-Holtenau. An average of 250 nautical miles (460 km) is saved by using the Kiel Canal instead of going around the Jutland Peninsula.
This not only saves time but also avoids potentially dangerous storm-prone seas.

Thank you, Inga!
