As sweet as sugar
The Sugar Glider – a small gliding marsupial, found most commonly in Australia but also in New Guineau, Tasmania and the Bismarck Archipelago – is becoming a popular pet in the US since they were made legal in March 2009.
Besides having an incredible cute appearance, the Sugar Glider bonds well to its human companions – if you have the time to devote to it. They are known as pocket pets because of their tininess and because once they are used to humans they become very sociable.
The Sugar Glider is not an endangered specie although it has lost a great deal of its natural habitat, fortunately it is highly adaptable and can live in almost any area.
