Are you ready to care for sugar gliders?
The sugar glider is a small gliding possum, named for it's love of sweet foods and it's ability to glide through the air. They are around 16 to 21 cm in length (with tails about as long as their bodies) and weigh between 90 and 150 grams. Their fur is usually grey with black patches on the ears and cream on the underbelly. With their amazing gliding membranes, sugar gliders can glide for great distances in the wild (measured at over 50 meters).
Sugar gliders aren't good pets for everybody. They take a lot of time and care. It takes a while to bond to them and get them to trust you. Find out if you are ready for this responsibility.
