This type of animal is popularly called opossum and a specimen is presented as a synanthropic
animal because it is not domesticated but lives nearby and benefits from humans and their dwellings.

In this context, only a few studies examine the possible reservoir role of synanthropic
animals in cities, where the role of certain domestic mammals has been analyzed exclusively (1).

iguana (SILVA et al., 2010), due to the greater proximity to different wild species and synanthropic
animals, such as rodents, being the main reservoirs of the agent.
Our study aims to fill this gap by following a marked synanthropic
population of brown recluse spiders in a semi-natural setting, an urban garage.
