Heidi, the cross-eyed opossum!

As if we need more proof that cute animals are the heart and soul of the Internet: meet Heidi, the cross-eyed opossum.  Heidi lives in the Leipzig Zoo in Germany, where she’s known as Das Schielende Opossum.  People all over the world have fallen in love with Heidi.  (It must be that dreamy look in her eyes.)

Some industrious children in Germany have even made a fan video in Heidi’s honor, and while I have no idea what the lyrics translate to, I guarantee your children will love this song and video as much as Hamster on a Piano (Eating Popcorn), if for no other reason than the adorable googly eyes she displays throughout.

You can learn more about Heidi at her Facebook fan page.
