Alisha’s precious Sugar Glider Charm is now ready for adoption. I am proud of my daughter’s quick mastery of wax carving and delighted with her new creation.
Some fun facts about Sugar Gliders:
They are marsupials and after birth, navigate into the protection of their mother’s pouch until fully developed.
They can glide up to 150 feet using the membranes between their hands and feet somewhat like a parachute and their long tails as navigational rudders.
Their habitat is in the forests of Australia, New Guinea and Indonesia where they dine on the sweet sap of the eucalyptus, acacia and gum trees with a few juicy insects and small vertebrates tossed into the salad.
They are nocturnal and have opposable thumbs on all four of their hands.
