Monday (Tuesday?) Mammal #13: Sugar Glider

It's Tuesday - I know, I know - but I had a bit of work to do, so this week's mammal is coming at you a day late.  Fortunately, it's insanely cute and following last week's theme it's another marsupial.  So I'm sure you won't mind the delay, right?

Meet, the sugar glider (Petaurus breviceps) - one of six species of marsupial "wrist-winged" gliders native to Australia and New Guinea.

And yes, like most mammals you'll no doubt find them extra cute when they're itty little balls of fluff...

I agree. They are simply the cutest! And there are a lot of interesting things about them too, like being a social animal, which makes it fun to play with them, their gliding move, and much more! But for me, the most interesting facts about them is that they are not a typical carrier of diseases, so they don’t need to be vaccinated as much as other animals do.
