by J-Stacknik

On her Facebook page the notice of her death read, "Heidi, our cross-eyed opossum, has closed her eyes forever today."

Heidi the cross-eyed opossum has closed her eyes for the last time, she died at a zoo in Leipzig, Germany. Zookeepers tried to treat her health issues for the last few days before realizing that it was better to put her to sleep than to let her continue suffering.

Heidi became an overnight sensation when the abandoned opossum was taken from Virginia in the United States to Leipzig, Germany and photos started appearing of her on online. The public descended upon the zoo to visit the loveable little critter. She then had her own Facebook page created which currently has over 340,000 members which is about 200,000 more members than German Chancellor Angela Merkel has today.

Jimmy Kimmel, an American late night talk show host, also used Heidi to predict the 2011 Academy Award winners. They set up photos of the five best actress and actor nominees and Heidi chose Natalie Portman for the women and Colin Firth for the men, both of whom ended up winning.

It is believed that Heidi’s crossed eyes could have come from poor diet when she was young, causing large fat deposits to form behind the eyes.

Fans from across the globe took to Facebook and Twitter to celebrate the life of Heidi leaving heartfelt wishes of condolences on her sites.
