"A cross-eyed, overweight opossum has won an unlikely starring role in coverage of this year's Oscars." Click on image to go to the BBC news article. Clearly following on from the great success of Paul - the late Oberhausen oracle octopus - another German Zoo, Leipzig, has twigged on a route to fame. The opossum, named Heidi - a German media sensation - has 300,000 Facebook fans and a global following; she will be on the US network ABC on Oscars night although she won't appear live...(no, no NOT dead, just not in the studio!). Originally from North Carolina anyway, where Heidi was found as an orphan, she should/could be a star.
