Many people have regarded opossums as pests that need to be gotten rid of. It would be a shame for their populations to be exterminated, as they’re the only marsupial to live in the North American continent. Even so, few people are taking measures to ensure that these animals remain safe. After all, who could turn away babies that look like this?
Baby opossums can become orphans quite easily, as their mothers are known to get hit by cars on the road. Many people don’t stop to check and see if the mother could have babies in its pouch, and by the time someone does, it’s often too late.
These interesting animals are capable of so much love that they’ll latch onto the first thing that gets close to them or offers them a little affection, and they won’t let go.
