Sugar Glider


During four evenings I watched Sugar Gliders (Petaurus breviceps). They arrived at the top of the trunk, and then came down slowly. If disturbed, they hid on the other side of the trunk. This one stood out against a pale bark background instead of the night’s dark rainforest background.
