NOT a mouse

Looks like a mouse: Has a mousy tail. And certainly its ears are Mickey-like. But it's no rodent.

This resident of the Riozoo in Rio de Janeiro is a Brazilian gamba (opossum), specifically the Big-Eared Opossum.

He is just too cute. The first time we ever heard of a Big-Eared Opossum. We love the facial markers he has. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful day.
