    Looks like a Cute Overload submission to me! They meet Rule of Cuteness #19 (Dainty Paws) and #21 (Eye Capsules). Oh, and the possum-specific rule, #16, “Yes, Possums Can Be Cute”.

    I live in NYS. What time of the year do the females give birth? How long do they carry in their pouch? Where do they “nest?”
