Interesting To Know

the sugar glider is a small marsupial which lives in various types of forests in Australia and New Guinea. The sugar glider can glide up to 45 meters. They live in small groups and build nests for themselves out of tree branches. The males mark the territory with their saliva. They also mark the group members with their olfactory glands. They communicate through smell and sounds, which sound like the bark of a small dog- small, but with style.
