Sugar Glider Squirrel

Sugar glider squirrels are social animals that belong to the small marsupial group. They are popular exotic pets in North America, and can form a close bond with their owner when handled from a young age. Sugar gliders are nocturnal, so their eyes are very sensitive to light. They are highly vocal and are capable of gliding through the air due to a thin stretch of skin between their front and back legs.
