    Video: Cross-eyed German opossum becomes internet hit - Telegraph


    "A cross-eyed opossum in Germany called Heidi who is not yet even on public display has become an internet hit, winning more than 80,000 admirers on social networking website Facebook.

    Heidi is thought to be two and a half years old, and was abandoned outside an animal shelter in North Carolina in the United States, together with her sister Naira, and has been in Leipzig zoo in eastern Germany since May.
    The sisters, plus a third male opossum called Teddy, arrived via a zoo in Denmark, and will make their public debut on July 1, the German zoo says on a special internet page set up for Heidi's fans.
    The zoo believes the marsupial's eye problem may be to do with her diet before she was abandoned, or because she is overweight, leading to fat deposits behind her eyes."

    Had one of those things burrow its way into my AC ductwork and then die one time. Not cute. And certainly not aromatic.

    Meh. I know a lazy eyed teacher, so this really isn't such a big deal. I never known an animal to be crossed eye, though.
