Meet Astoria's "OctoPossum", Mother Opossum Explores Neighborhood With 8 Tiny Babies

Astoria resident Gene Gray recently spotted an opossum in his neighborhood that was schlepping 8 tiny babies around on her back. They named her "OctoPossum", a reference to Nadya Suleman, the original Octomom.

Typical morning, drinking coffee, […] look out of the window & see our neighborhood opossum taking her 8 that's right EIGHT opossum offspring for a ride. We've decided to name her #OctoPossum
