Added to the list of official rocks, foods, festivals and critters would be:
State fossil: The fossilized teeth of the megalodon shark.
Frog: The pine barrens tree frog (Hyla andersonii)
Salamander: The marbled salamander (Ambystoma opacum)

Possums, of course, attracted attention earlier this year because of their participation in certain New Year's Eve festivities.
