No harness? I would be leery of them jumping of me and taking a long climb up a tree!


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

We keep a good distance from trees and can run faster then them if it came down to that, but they don't want to leave us. Its cute we put them on the ground and take a step back and they run to us and climb up our leg or something.

Anyway harnesses are bad for them. It can hurt their glider membrane.

It's nice to know that my ineptitude in the darkroom transfers over to the digital world...

I love that third picture! I've been interested in getting a Sugar Glider, but I've got my Chinchilla and his big cage so maybe sometime in the future. :]

Thanks guys. I'll take more on our next outing with them :)

They are a hand full. They eat better then I do and they require a lot of bonding time. Also they bark at night... just make sure you do some research before you get one. and dont get them from a local pet store. Here is a good website to checkout for research www.glidercentral.net (external link)

#1 and #3 are my favorites, I love how well-exposed the subject and background is. BTW--small world! It's Sabarika from CG. ;3 Your little guys are SOO cute.

I've never heard of 'em before (here in USA) but they are very, very cute. Related to the flying squirrel perhaps?

haha hey Sabarika. Yeah those are my fav also.

I don't think they are related. I believe they are marsupials from Australia.
