is my "baby" Sable and we live in Dripping Springs, TX
... She was my 40th birthday present from my husband Rick. Sable is
three to four months old. Sable is a Sugar Glider which is a
marsupial, which relates to the kangaroo and koala family. They are
nocturnal, which means they sleep during the day and play at night.
If you notice from the picture, her eyes are big and black, totally
dilated, can't handle too much light. Sugar Gliders actually
"glide" through the air, descendants of the flying
squirrel, they have membranes that act as "wings". When you
adopt these babies you have to keep them on your body for at least 30
days so you can bond to you, meaning that you will be their
"mom". Sable loves to jump right down my blouse when I pull
her out of her cage "that's home". When she gets upset, she
"crabs" so loud, that you cannot believe that it comes out
of such a small body! Her favorite thing is to rub noses with me!
