Who says being a mother is easy?

Human moms have it good compared to opossums!
By my count, this poor little opossum has at least 10 babies clinging to her.

Joan once saw a similar sight on her porch: a little mommy opossum carrying a load of babies. She looked so tired! 🙂

Thank you Dr.Eowyn for this adorable post! Yes, I saw such a mommy possum as well with all of her children. I was stunned because I have never ever seen such an animal with so many babies, and I had never seen a possum before either! It was then that I started to put food out for the mommie and her little family, and I have been doing that ever since. I have possums that come to my deck and eat food out of the baskets that I have outside. I never get tired of watching them eat!

LOL – Down here in Georgia, that would make a lot of possum stew. 😉
