On which side of the great opossum debate do you fall?
This video of a mom opossum giving a piggyback to her eight babies in New York is being shared a lot at the moment.
In the video Gray and his wife can be heard overcome with surprise at the appearance of the animal.
« My wife said, 'Gene, OMG… What is that?' » Gray told ABC7 News.
« I guess the opossum thought it was a nice day as well and decided to take the kids out for a walk. I grabbed my iPhone and after fumbling was finally able to capture the footage. »

They named her OctoPossum because of her eight children.
« Poor OctoPossum looked wiped out, but the little ones held on tight, » Gray said.
