Sugar gliders are absolutely amazing creatures.
Much like flying squirrels, these little guys benefit from their own unique mode of transportation somewhere in between jumping and flying.
Two relatively massive flaps of skin stretching from front to hind legs lend them the gift of gliding and a remarkably unique appearance.
Although the semblance they bear to squirrels is obvious, they are actually considered to be a type of gliding possum!
Although many people are, unfortunately, not living in an area naturally inhabited by these wind-surfing marsupials, they have grown in favor as house pets in recent years.
Judging by this batch of adorable pictures, it’s not tough to determine why.
