Animal trainer Stephanie Maldonado wrote on Facebook that a litter of baby opossums were orphaned in Brazil on Jan. 16 after her uncle's dog attacked and killed their mother.

Opossums are marsupials and their babies live in their pouches for the first 70 to 125 days of their life, enjoying the extra warmth from when they are young.

Although it was not clear how old the babies were when they lost their mother, Maldonado was concerned the little opossums wouldn't be able to survive without a mother's warm pouch to sleep inside.
