This amazing adoption story happened in Rio de Janeiro. Seven orphaned possums found a new mom!
Interspecies adoptions are not uncommon in the wild. Moms will be moms because instincts don't allow them to leave orphaned creatures in trouble...
This dog took on the role of a noble rescuer when the possum mother was killed in a fight with another dog.
A Good Samaritan spotted a litter of baby possums in the woods and took them in. It's amazing how in one moment one can lose and gain a new family.
Now the dog even gives a ride to the babies as real possum moms do in the wild.
