The sugar glider is a very interesting animal, they have flaps that allow them to glide as far as 50 yards! They use their gliding ability to move from tree to tree at extreme speeds to get away from predators in the rainforests of Australia! Sugar gliders live in trees, away from predators. They eat sap from trees and flowers. But in the future the trees (their homes) and plants (their food) will die from being cut down, or dying from global warming. But, they have sharp claws, their flaps (which allows them to glide), and huge eyes. Their claws help them defend themselves and catch bugs. Their flaps help them escape from predators. And their huge eyes help them see in the dark allowing them to see if there are any predators nearby.
