Cross-Eyed Opossum Becomes German Zoo Darling 1/24/11

I don't know where opossum rank on the list of cute animals, but I imagine that it's not very high.

But somehow, this cross-eyed beast is getting a lot of love over in Germany.
Her name is Heidi, and -- as you can see -- she's got a little bit of a problem with her stare. It's all crossed up.
She lives in the Leipzig Zoo, but isn't on display yet -- her exhibit doesn't open up until July.
But the nation has fallen in love with her since she showed off her cross-eyed gaze on a behind-the-scenes TV special, and as Ed Mazza writes, she already has a pop tune and a stuffed toy.
See Heidi and other strange creatures in my Weird Animals Photo Collection.
