Sugar Gliders get their name because of their preference for sugary foods like sap and nectar! Much like flying squirrels, Sugar Gliders have a gliding membrane from their forelegs to their hind legs which allows them to glide around! Squeek is created with a soft multi-toned grey plush. Lighter on the underbelly, as in real life, and with darker spots on his head and tail. Pellets in the gliding membrane give it some weight and allow it to drape across your hands in real gliding fashion. Created with attention to detail and quality for years of sugar gliding fun!
