| Sugar Glider, Sugar Squirrel, Lesser Flying Squirrel, Lesser Glider, Lesser Flying Phalanger
| Like the Yellow-bellied Glider, the major portion of the diet of the Sugar Glider consists of invertebrates and this is added to by eating nectar and pollen. The Sugar Glider also eats sap from Eucalypts and Acacias. Unlike the Yellow-bellied Glider, the Sugar Glider does not incise the tree to obtain sap, rather it chews the bark and visits incisions made by the Yellow-bellied Glider.
|| Each year females give birth to one or two young between June and January. The gestation period is about 16 days and the young stay in the pouch up to 70 days.
