According to international news sites that day, cross-eyed opossum Heidi, who became an Internet sensation early this year was taken to her new home, but still in Leipzig Zoo.

Heidi, the cross-eyed opossum, will now be staying at the $82.5 million-worth Gondwanaland, a 1.6-hectare tropical themed exhibit, which will be open to public starting July 1.

Heidi, now two years old, who has now about 326,000 Facebook friends, was earlier noted to have poor sight which was said to be caused by poor diet when she was younger.

Zoo officials said fat deposits may have developed into Heidi’s crossed eyes, but seemed to have enjoyed the attention as she even made a peek to the German press while being transferred.

As of this writing, Heidi is being described as healthy and is now ready to join other animals at Gondwanaland, where she can be seen by public anytime.
