Mama opossum figures out the best way to not lose any of her 12 kids is by carrying all of them on her back!


An opossum is a marsupial that can mainly be found throughout the Americas but more commonly in South America. They can grow up to the size of a house cat and have grayish-brown fur coats that cover their bodies.

They’re usually solitary creatures and are known to be nomadic as they will stay in an area as long as food and water are easily available to them. A mother opossum was recently filmed and uploaded on the internet where the video soon circulated rapidly. The mother was in the midst of walking but with all her 12 children on her back!
