Penguin here.

Opossums, commonly called possums, are a fuzzy kind of marsupial. Apparently, baby opossums can actually hang by their tails, as you can see here. How cute is that? I wonder how that tiny tail is strong enough to hold their fuzzy bodies. Better yet, I wonder how they’re going to get themselves down to solid ground, and how on Earth they were even able to hang on that branch in the first place!

You can get a quite a nice view from up here!
