Bare-tailed Woolly Opossum (Caluromys philander), also called the White-eared Opossum is an opossum species from South America. It is a species restricted only to moist forests.

Just like any other member of the Caluromys genus, the Bare-tailed Woolly opossum is a strongly arboreal species of marsupial, differing from other Didelphidae opossums for having a comparatively large encephalization quotient and smaller litter size. It feeds on fruits, nectar, invertebrates and small vertebrates.
