Wild Moves: Sugar Glider
Why walk when you can glide? That’s the sugar glider’s philosophy, and this marauding marsupial is well suited to its lofty ambitions. From its widely-spaced eyes that improve its depth perception, to a crouch-and-launch jumping technique that propels it into the air like a spring, to the hidden membrane that unfolds when it leaps, allowing it to glide between trees almost 200 feet apart! Nothing prepares you for the breathtaking slow-motion artistry of a sugar glider in mid-flight.
