Opossums get a bad rap. There are too many poor souls who think these sweet baby animals are “gross” or “scary.” But they’re completely wrong. Here are 9 examples of proof beyond any doubt that possums are underrated- and truthfully, I want approximately 5 of them as pets. They just want to be friends!

Her name is Poppy (Poppy the Possum!!), and she’s dressed like a bee. A BEE. Look at that lil’ pink nose and tell me that’s not adorable.

Sesame the possum looks so happy to be settling down for a nap with his strange, fuzzy larger brother. Just look at that smile!!

This polite young man just makes the best party host. His home may not be large, but he’s obviously ready to welcome all his friends inside with his adorably tiny pink hands.

Here we see a friend hard at work! Being a semi-blind, nocturnal explorer of clover fields and small grasses is an exhausting job, what can she say?

It’s snack time at the possum household! Carrots, cabbage, walnuts and kale are yummy for a critter tummy. Looks like a good movie night treat to me…

How could you possibly say no to THIS face? A Saturday morning spent cuddling up in the blankets with this warm, furry friend? Yes, please.

Two words: POSSUM PROM. Seriously, why does this tiny, whiskered angel look more like a model than I ever will? #natural #beauty #glamor

Oh, no… the critics were right… this guy is TERRIFYING! What with his oversized ears, fluffy puffball bod, and BIG, SCARY ROAR. How will I ever sleep again??
