(WFLA) A car hit his mother and seven brothers and sisters.
Now a Florida vet tech is raising him as if he's her own baby. She cuddles him in a blanket and walks him in a stroller.
"Everybody usually thinks they're going to come up on a cute little baby and instead they find an adorable little possum," said Lea Murray.
Murray says Barley, her 1-year-old possum, is the best pet she's ever had.
"He does nothing wrong. He doesn't destroy anything, doesn't tear up anything," said Murray. "I just love him."
