Sugar glider, Petaurus breviceps

I’d spent months watching the gliders on my family farm and finding the nest hollow was the priority. After many long, cold nights I narrowed it down to this old, dead, brittle gum. Each night they would emerge at 8.28pm, poking their little heads out for five minutes to make sure it was safe before leaving to feed.
