She is not electrically charged, and she probably does not like Ryan Reynolds, but this little possum is paying attention to the whole world for its resemblance to some popular Pokémon.
The treatment of baby brushtail possum was brought to Boronia Veterinary Clinic and Animal Hospital in Australia last month. The most common brushes are gray and brown, but this one was born with a genetic mutation, lowered her melanin levels and gave her the rare gold color.
Readers took no time to notice their resemblance to Pikachu, who has been announcing worldwide social media. Unfortunately, the bright color means that predators will as much notice her. So, instead of being released into nature when her care is complete, she will live well-behaved (and probably very popular with Instagram) in a wildlife shelter.
She is also the poster girl for the clinic’s holiday photography contest, which will make two winners a $ 100 voucher against pet care at their facility, as well as seasonal sweets for their petmates to go home and enjoy.
