What are baby opossum's called?

Opossums, like kangaroos, are marsupials. But unlike kangaroo babies (called joeys), there is no special designation for baby opossums. They are simply referred to as young. In Mumford's book Mammals of Indiana, he does refer to "pouch young' to indicate the very early development stages that take place in the pouch, but once the baby opossums have developed toes and fur, they are simply called young. While researching this question, I did receive some interesting suggestions as to what baby opossums should be called: pups, papooses, larvae, and (my favorite) grubs. Newborn opossums do sort of look like pink grubs.
