An Orphaned Baby Opossum Takes Up A New Best Friend Animals, Dogs, Featured By AnimalSilo On October 6, 2015 No Comments Poncho the opossum was rescued from the side of a road after his mother was hit by a car. Rescuers managed to keep him alive but he still didn’t have a mother to rear him. So the vets at the Rare Species Fund introduced Poncho to Hantu, a white German shepherd. The pair took to each other like they were natural-born mother and son. Hantu couldn’t go anywhere without Poncho clinging to her back as though she was a mother opossum. Poncho is all grown up now, and even though he might be a little big to ride on his mom’s back, she doesn’t seem to mind. Watch these two go for an adorable hike in the woods together!
