Opossum Babies Hitch Ride on Mom's Back in Pennsylvania Backyard

A woman in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, was treated to an adorable familial spectacle in her backyard when she found an opossum mother and her teeming squad of babies, recently shared video shows.

Lancaster resident Deborah Susan Serdy said she was left enchanted after she spotted the marsupials one day, and was hoping they would return so she could document them.

“I had my camera ready in the morning as I was drinking my coffee, hoping I would see her again, and she did not disappoint,” Serdy said. Credit: Deborah Susan Serdy via Storyful
