Introduction to Sugar Gliders
Sugar gliders (scientific name Petaurus breviceps) are small marsupials, mammals that nurse their offspring in pouches on their stomachs. Kangaroos, koalas, opossums, bandicoots, and wombats are also marsupials. These exotic pets come originally from Australia, Indonesia, and New Guinea and were first brought to the United States in the 1990s.
