Sugar Glider (Petaurus breviceps, Petauridae: Gliders) mid-north coast NSW, Australia

In Australia the Sugar Glider is found in forest and woodland in northern and eastern Australia including Tasmania. Also found in New Guinea. It feeds on tree sap, nectar, flowers and insects etc. Nocturnal in nature, as its name suggests it can glide up to 50 m on a membrane between it's fore and hind limbs. Seen here blossom feeding on a winters night in coastal NSW, with the sound of the odd fruit bat.
