Sis forSugar glider
Scientific name: petaurus breviceps
The sugar glider is a small marsupial found in Australia and New Guinea that looks like a tiny possum. Sugar gliders have a flap of skin between their front and back legs on both sides that they can stretch out and use to glide. Sugar gliders can jump out of trees and glide through the air to another tree, like a flying squirrel. Sugar gliders eat the sweet sap of some trees, and some types of nectar.
