(WHAS 11)--A Florida man said his neighbors aren't too thrilled with him but he's getting gifts from all over the world.

All because of what he rescued.

Erik Markt is an avid kayaker and was out recently when he saw what he thought was a small dog swimming way too far from shore. So he grabbed it. That's when he realized it was a opossum.

And to make matters worse it is a pregnant, wet, scared, opossum.
  
The video has now gone viral and Erik said he received a gift from Amazon.com - a T-shirt that says awesome opossum.
