Im-Possum-Bly Adorable: Mother Opossum Seen Carrying Five Babies on Her Back

An opossum mother carried her five babies while walking over a wall outside a home in Los Angeles, California.

Michael Suter filmed a video on July 6 that shows the opossum mum, with five joeys clinging on her back, carefully walking on the top of the wall.

A baby opossum’s survival “depends on his ability to cling to mom’s back and fur as she wanders her territory in search of food,” according to wildlife charity organization Wildcare. Credit: Michael Suter via Storyful
