Did you know that the sugar glider likes to eat the sugar in blossoms, buds, native fruits and the sap from trees such as the wattle tree? It likes to eat insects too.

Sugar gliders live in Australia in the forests, or better known as the bush by Australians. Sugar gliders make nests in the hollows of trees. They collect leaves for their nests. They can glide 45 metres in one single leap.

If you have some animal books you may be able to find a picture of a sugar glider in it. Because the sugar glider is an Australian animal, you may need a book which shows you animals from Australia.

Go outside and measure 45 metres, that is how far a sugar glider can leap.

Draw a picture of a sugar glider.
