When she saw the baby possum’s adorable habit, she took a quick video on her phone. “In between tube feeds, this is how you will find him,” Dubuisson wrote on Facebook. “The level of precious in this video is beyond any comprehension.”
When the baby and his six brothers and sisters first came to Dubuisson, each one weighed less than a quarter. The tiny, pink animals were helpless without their mom, but Dubuisson knew that with a little care they could grow up strong.
“The babies are born the size of a bean and make their way to the pouch where they continue to grow,” Dubuisson said. “These babies were just a few weeks old.”
