1st Sugar Glider
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Sugar Glider - Petaurus breviceps|
If I am not wrong, this is the first photo of Sugar Glider on TN.
A sugar glider has a squirrel-like body with a long partially prehensile tail. The males are larger than the females, and their length from the nose to the tip of the tail is about 24 to 30 cm (12–13 inches, the body itself is approx. 5–6 inches). A sugar glider has a thick, soft fur coat that is usually blue-grey; some have been known to be yellow, tan, or albino. A black stripe is seen from its nose to midway of its back. Its belly, throat, and chest is a cream color.
