Wildlife sanctuary rescues a rare beautiful golden possum

Sometimes some animals are so beautiful that it is hard to believe that they even exist. Their beauty captivates everyone. It is the case for one beautiful rescue animal which has become an internet sensation only due to its beautiful colour.

The animal is a rare Golden Possum whom you might never have seen. It came to Boronia Veterinary Clinic and Animal Hospital in Victoria, Australia, in 2018.

It’s a rare golden variety and the golden colour is due to a mutation that causes a low level of pigment melanin which gives them their normal colour.

Though the animal looks very adorable yet its colour also puts it at great risk in the wild. As their colour is very bright, it also makes them stand out to predators.

For this possum, it does not have to worry about this thing as he will get to grow up in the safety of the wildlife sanctuary.

Though possums are not regarded as very adorable, yet this little guy went viral. People started comparing it to the Pokemon character. Surely it is a lovable guy and we wish him all the best for his life in the sanctuary.
