Incredibly chill and cute possum goes viral after being snapped catching the tram in Melbourne

This is easily the most adorable fare evader you’ll ever see.

This week in ‘It Thinks Its People’: A straight up cute AF ring-tail possum has become a viral sensation after posing for a photograph on a Melbourne tram.

Reddit user UterZorker uploaded the image with the caption ‘Fine Me Bro’ but was unable to confirm or deny if the possum tapped on and off.

While most people on the Internet were content to reveal in the resplendent joy of a possum just chilling out and catching the tram, 3AW saw fit to ask Melbourne Zoo if the city had a possum problem.

“I think it’s a real picture…I’m thinking something along the lines of where they dock the trams at night time, potentially at the depot with the doors open… he’s just gotten out, a little bit curious, climbed on the tram and taken a little spot nice and cosy under a seat to have a snooze,” Senior Keeper at Melbourne Zoo, Meaghan Thomas said.

She added that there’s no reason to think we’re in the midst of a possum plague and if we are, who the hell cares – LOOK HOW CUTE THEY ARE.
