Austin Resident Stunned by Opossum Family's Cuteness

A resident of Austin, Texas, was bowled over by the sight of baby opossums hitching a ride on their mother’s back in his yard, calling the family “the cutest thing” as the mother carefully walked by.

Nathan Gregory Bornstein, who filmed the video, first noticed the mother opossum out his back door and thought she was just unusually large.

Bornstein said he later went out to check on his cat Lionel and found the pet staring at the “wonderful momma opossum” carrying her joeys. He shared the video on TikTok on June 12. Credit: Nathan Gregory Bornstein via Storyful
