I get this little opossum visiting almost every night, I think he's adorable.
Is the entire tomato eaten or just a bite or two. Are they green tomatoes or colored. Here in the states many animals love tomatoes. From mice to moose and just about everything in between. This year many of my green tomatoes were eaten by deer. They knocked the tomatoes off of the plant and then took 2 or 3 big bites before doing it again. Racoons and possums usually eat about 1/3 of a tomato. Rats and mice just take a few small bites before moving on the next tomato. I hear ground hogs love tomatoes but thankfully they aren't in Texas. And squirrels...................................My son lives in Ohio and just recently an animal has been eating his tomatoes that are still attached to the plants. Any ideas what it might be please? I didn't think animals would eat them knowing their consistency and flavour but I've obviously been proved wrong.
It could be a skunk but I have never seen them eat vegetables. They get into my garden but all they do is dig up worms and grubs. If I were a betting man I would bet on coons or possums. I don't know if there are coyotes there or not but they also love fresh vegetables. I shot one last year while it was eating a cantaloupe I was going to pick the next morning.
