When a wild animal loses its mother, survival is almost impossible. So when Poncho the baby opossum was found clinging to his mother’s lifeless body, things didn’t look too promising for the little guy.
Thankfully, he was found by kind strangers and taken to an animal shelter. Still, Poncho’s road to recovery was far from over. Without a mother to teach him how to survive, it wasn’t long before the veterinarians from the Rare Species Fund, who had been caring for him, knew they needed help.
That’s when they had the idea to introduce him to someone completely unexpected. The results were more than just about anyone in the world could have anticipated! [Credit: Myrtle Beach Safari / Rare Species Fund]
