Heidi The Cross-Eyed Opossum's Nicer New Home

Filed under: ZooFunnyopossum

Now she's really made it!

Heidi, a cross-eyed opossum, who has become the biggest American-born star to hit Germany since The Hasselhoff, now has sweet new digs to for her fame.

Heidi and her sister, Naira, were raised as a foundling in a SC wild animal station before moving to the Leipzig Zoo in, 2010 — have now been moved into a special exhibit at the zoo called the Gondwanaland Tropical Experience World!

(sounds fancy!)

Although a Leipzig Zoo spokesman insisted to the Local that the "media resonance was surprising and not planned," it has nevertheless moved to protect the rights to her name and cross-eyed image - believed to be the result of pressure on her eyes created by fatty deposits.

The zoo says the squint doesn't hurt Heidi and, certainly, her popularity won't hurt the zoo's bottom line.
