This species holds two recognized subspecies, one of which is locally common and one that is rare to encounter. The yellow-bellied glider can reach an average body length of 11.8 inches, with an average tail length...
The Squirrel Glider (Petaurus norfolcensis) is a flying possum of the marsupial family Petauridae. It is one of the wrist-winged gliders of the Petaurus genus. Like most of the wrist-winged gliders, the Squirrel Glider is endemic to Australia. It is about twice the size of the related Sugar Glider (P. breiceps). The Squirrel Glider eats mostly fruit and insects. They can glide up to 16.4 yards (15 m) from tree to tree. They tend not to glide in captivity.
The Mahogany Glider (Petaurus gracilis), which is named for its mahogany-brown color, is a highly endangered possum. They are very similar in appearance to both the smaller sized Sugar Glider and Squirrel Glider. The Mahogany Glider is restricted to a very small area, between Ingham and Tully in North Queensland, Australia. The reason for the Mahogany Glider being one of Australia's most threatened species is loss of habitat. About 80% of habitat having been cleared for the growing of...
The Sugar Glider (Petaurus breviceps), sometimes called the Flying Sugar, is a small gliding possum. It is native to eastern and northern mainland Australia, New Guinea, and the Bismarck Archipelago, and introduced to Tasmania. Physical description The Sugar Glider is around 6.3 to 7.5 in (16 to 20 cm) long, with a tail almost as long as the body. It weighs between 3 and 5.3 oz (90 to 150 g).
