Sassy and Cinnamon, the Pet of the Day
Name: Sassy, Cinnamon
Age: Two and a half, Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Sugar Gliders
Home: Indiana, USA
   Sassy and Cinnamon are sugar gliders and they are half-sisters (same parents, different litters). They are marsupials and are tree dwellers in the wild and they do glide like flying squirrels. In the wild they eat tree sap and insects. Gliders make excellent pets. They are very social animals so it is very important that a glider isn't kept alone. Either have more than one or be prepared to spend lots of time if you only have one. They are approximately six inches of body and another six inches of tail. They are usually a silvery beige color with chocolate brown "racing" stripes and they are fast moving. They are nocturnal so they have large eyes. They are really adorable little friends.
