Video Script:: 

they're quite a rare species to find I'd only ever seen one or two in the wild myself and then all the sudden I had this little bundle of adorable striped opossum we think she must have fallen off her mother's back or out of her mother's pouch we'd offered her some special orphaned possum milk and she loved it she lapped it up she sleep all day wake up every four hours get fed that's what she did for the first few weeks she was able to move the bond that would have been for her mother to us the first few nights she actually sled with us in the bed on me because I didn't want to break that bond she started to get her balance and learn how to climb often she'd just be like hanging out on my shoulder or sitting on my head here in my book a few distractions though hmm sometimes she'd be just flat on her back with all four legs in the air and so we've had a little belly and it's the softest thing you've ever felt in your whole life [Music] she had the festival life she had this appetite we started offering her pieces of fruit she have a little nibble on the fruit I remember offering her her very first worm you could just see the enjoyment on her face eventually she went up into the the main enclosure which is quite large [Music] quite go around and stick fruits and bog through things all through her enclosure just to get that behavior going and just see she's trying to figure things out all the time and just like what's under there how do I get there [Music] she kind of outgrew us and by the time she was ready to go she was running around all night in the enclosed you know trying to get out basically when communicating with the possum outside so you can see they were vocalizing I was like it's time we opened the doors one night she just jumped up started exploring and then she was off everything she came back the next morning and she did the in her enclosure she would just leave form one more time and eventually she was gone full time and then we didn't hear from her for about a year and about a month and a half ago we heard some calling and we both ran outside we looked up in the tree and there she was it was just this awesome adventure for us to watch and learn about this incredible animal like comment and subscribe
