Punchy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Punchy
Age: 2.5 months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Sugar glider
Home: Atlanta, Georgia, USA
   Punchy is so special because he is gentle, cute, loving, and fun to play with. He enjoys grooming me to show affection. He likes to hide in my pocket anytime, however at night he is a little more active and wants to come out and play. Because he is a marsupial, pockets, pouches, and anything similar that is cozy, tight, and warm is familiar to him, and therefore he feels safe in my pockets.

    Punchy loves to run on his wheel! He eats apples and chow. Sometimes he wakes me up at night with all the munching, but it makes me happy to hear it. Punchy also glides through the air (He is still learning to glide farther distances). You cannot tell from the pictures, but sugar gliders, if some of you aren't familiar with them, have winged bodies that allow them to glide from one object to the next. I look forward to seeing him grow and learning to glide longer distances, as he's still a growing boy!
