Squirrel Glider

$58.00

Squirrel gliders are named so because of their dense, bushy tail.
They are not quite as well known as their smaller relative, the sugar glider. Squirrel gliders and sugar gliders are found on the East coast of Australia, squirrel gliders are usually the more abundant of the two species.

Primarily occur in woodland and open Eucalypt forest.

Squirrel gliders diet consists of nectar, pollen, plant exudates acacia gum and eucalypt sap. They also feed on invertebrates.

 

Threats

All gliders have been affected by habitat clearing and fragmentation.

Feral predators such as dogs, cats, and foxes have always been threats especially when the protection from habitat clearing continues.

In farming areas, barbed wire fences trap gliders by their gliding membrane.

Description

General information about our animals

All our Puppets and toys are hand made from materials made in an environmentally sustainable.
All runoff from dyes used is contained and disposed of in an ecologically safe way.   All materials are fire-resistant and have been tested under a flame.

All patterns are drawn by hand first and then shaped into the three-dimensional shape that is meticulously worked with by producing many samples until the spirit of the animal is revealed and comes to life when it is used. (by the puppeteer!)
We deliberately use old methods of cutting the material by a small hand machine then sewn by hand and on machines both in Nanjing and In Melbourne.
This is achieved by a small group of women.

( see our History to see the development of Secret Gully puppets and Endangered Animals Australia)
