NORFOLK, Va. – A pair of Virginia opossums that have been hand raised by the veterinary staff at the Virginia Zoo turned one-year-old on Friday.
Although the zoo doesn’t know the exact date of their birth, they estimate it is around April 15.
The opossums, named Fiona and Seamus, have become animal ambassadors for the Virginia Zoo’s educational programs.
Recently, Seamus appeared at one of the Zoo’s onsite school programs and Fiona was one of the animal ambassadors appearing at the screening of Disney’s Zootopia movie.
The Zoo says both are doing great making appearances and meeting Zoo guests.
