Doing the school run is always a balancing act, but this opossum is taking it all in her stride as she ferries 15 babies along a street.

The cute critter was spotted by a passerby who filmed as she strolled along with her brood clinging to her back.

As the man who filmed them called out 'Good morning!' the opossum and all of her babies turned round to look at him, before continuing their journey.

Opossums, known best for their ability to play dead when threatened, can have up to 20 babies, which are the size of a bumble bee when born and live in the mother's pouch.

As the babies get older they like to ride on the mother's back as she goes out to hunt, or scavenge through neighborhood bins.
