Night Sounds of the Australian Bush – Sugar Glider
The Sugar Glider (Petaurus breviceps) is a species of small gliding possum found throughout the forests of eastern Australia. It is generally more common than its larger cousin, the Squirrel Glider with which overlaps in range.
The most commonly heard call of the Sugar Glider is a bit like the ‘yapping’ of a small dog and can be very monotonous!
