Baby Sugar Glider is Saved From Angry Birds!
December 20, 2011
This young Sugar Glider joey was found on a road about an hour drive from Sydney's Taronga Zoo being attacked by birds. Taronga vets discovered a small wound on her leg and Wildlife Nurse Annabelle took her home for round-the-clock-care. She’s now doing really well and has just moved into the Zoo’s Nocturnal House at Wild Australia. Sugar Gliders are nocturnal Marsupials native to Mainland Australia. Their most striking feature is a patagium, or membrane that stretches from their hands to their feet, allowing them to actually glide 50 - 150 meters. That's about a football field and a half! Great save Taronga!
