Gliders galore in Flowerdale

April 11, 2011

This hollow dead tree on a partially burnt property at Flowerdale is providing a home for a whole family of Sugar Gliders.  On several occasions, the owners of the property have been delighted to see up to nine gliders climb and take off from the tree at dusk.

Here is more glider activity as they clamber around the tree, and note a Brushtail Possum also joining in towards the end of the clip.

This shows the importance of leaving standing dead trees with hollows for arboreal mammal habitat.
