Possums and opossums look almost identical, however, they're different species. Possums are found in Australia, while opossums inhabit the US. It would be hard to believe looking at their photos, but these marsupials are generally disliked and considered pests.

I mean, come on, how could you not like them? Be it possum or opossum, they are both oh-so-adorable! What do you think? Vote for and comment on the pics below to let us know! You can upload your photos, too.
