Cute Possums Lap Milk While Swaddled in Winter Pyjamas

Storyful

Tiny possums Ruby and Pumpernickel are orphaned patients at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

According to a nurse at the hospital, creatures of a similar age are paired while recovering and are only released together.

The ringtails are delicate, so they require warm clothing and warm milk for optimum health, similar to a mother’s pouch. Credit: Facebook/Currumbin Wildlife Hospital via Storyful
