White-Eared Opossum Babies

A friend brought us these kittens. He found them on the side of the road, next to their dead mother, run over by a car. After four months of intensive care, being raised with a baby bottle, the opossums were released at the wildlife sanctuary PETAR. A new life in the Atlantic rain-forest had started.


Curiosity is good

But the baby bottle is better

Shortly before release

Finally back into the ancestral rain-forest …

… where climbing skills can be used again
