Awsome animal of the (whenever I get my shit together)

Hi Guys, I'm not very good at being consistent am I? Well I am back with an awesom animal and hopefully more to come.

 

Awesome animal The Sugar Glider

 

This has got to be one of the cutest animal I’ve ever seen. It is a marsupial from Australia (where else) and it can fly, well glide.

As you can see from the pics they have a membrane running down their sides and when they flex it they  can glide for about 50–150 meters, they can bank left and right by dipping their legs and they can stear by using their tail as a rudder. Now that is pretty awesome.

You can own your very own Sugar Glider although I do not encourage ownership of any exotic pet unless you know what you are getting into and you are saving it from a shit life with someone who won’t take care of it. 

If you do consider it you need to know that they can bite and scratch especially if you’re trying to make them do something they don’t want, like putting them back in they’re cage. They may very well pee on you, not because they have a leaky bladder, but they mark where they’ve been in the wild so that their kin can follow. Also they like live prey like mealworms. They really don't get on with other pets and they can live up to 15 years so you have the same commitement to them as you would a dogy. Other than that they make good pets and there are loads of videos on youtube by Sugar Glider owners.

 

Anyway here’s some more information that I copied from wikipedia, enjoy.

 

Sugar gliders can be found all throughout the northern and eastern parts of mainland Australia, as well as the surrounding islands of Tasmania, Papua New Guinea, and Indonesia. They can be found in any forest where there is food supply but are commonly found in forests with eucalyptus trees. They are nocturnal, meaning they sleep in their nests during the day and are active at night. At night, they hunt for insects and small vertebrates and feed on the sweet sap of certain species of eucalyptus, acacia and gum trees. The sugar glider is named for its preference for nectarous foods and its ability to glide through the air, much like a flying squirrel.

When suitable habitats are present, sugar gliders can be seen 1 per 1,000 square meters provided that there are tree hollows available for shelter. They live in groups of up to seven adults, plus the current season's young, all sharing a nest and defending their territory, an example of helping at the nest. A dominant adult male will mark his territory and members of the group with saliva and a scent produced by separate glands on the forehead and chest. Intruders who lack the appropriate scent marking are expelled violently

With a mini forest, being well looked after and with companions of their own race, I see no reason for them not to be happy! :) And please, if you ever do that... send us lots of photos and videos!!!

Thanks for the Rock and Bullwinkle vid P, brings back memories (btw I'm pretty sure that Bullwinkle is definitely Canadian).

I agree with you Simmy, however I might be tempted to get a few if I ever had enough money and room to build them a miniature forest with heating.

Oh they are so cuuuuute!

As much as I'd love to have one at home, I don't think they would be very happy away from the forest... :(
