Funny looking raccoons

No masks and no ring tails! But pretty cute none the less. Got a group of 8 opossums....all boys too! Mom was hit by a car and killed along with 2 other siblings, but these guys were found and rescued in time. Mary is our resident opossum expert so I RAN to her when I got them! ha ha

These little guys are about 47 grams. They are not self feeding yet, but they are I got some instructions from Mary and we split them. I'll take care of 4 of them until they start self feeding then we can reunite them all again and they will stay at Mary's until released.
