Opossum family at Panama bird feeder

This video says about itself:

Mother Opossum Arrives On The Panama Fruit Feeder With A Pouch Full Of Joeys – April 4, 2020

It’s a near-nightly occurrence to see a Common Opossum on the feeder, though it is not common to see one with a pouch full of young. This female was able to get her fill of bananas before waddling off into the night. Opossum babies are the size of jellybeans at birth and there can be up to 20 of them. At the one minute mark, look for a joey’s tail poking out of the pouch. Given the size of that tail, and the mother’s pouch, these young are certainly past the jellybean stage.
