Squirrel Glider

Squirrel Glider

No. Not a “Sugar Glider.” A “SQUIRREL Glider.” There are many types of “wrist-winged gliders,” such as mahogany (not made of wood), northern (not a yankee), yellow-bellied (not fearful), etc. They are about double the size of “Sugar Gliders” and have larger molars, which also makes it easy for them to dress as vampires at Halloween. They are about the size of a large rat.

Your reaction upon seeing a large flying rat,”OH MA GAWD. SOMEONE HELP ME!”

Your reaction seeing a fuzzy-tailed Squirrel Glider, “AW! Wook at dat furry-worry wittle baby.”

The Squirrel Glider is quite the acrobat and uses the membrane between their front and back legs to move from tree to tree, “gliding,” if you will. ¬†They live in south-eastern Australian woodlands, with other awesome animals that occur nowhere else in the world.
