Sugar Gliders are a perfect friend that you can take everywhere with you, living 12-14 years and older, and weighing 12-14 oz. They can be trained to learn their name, come when called, and kiss you goodnight on your cheek. They are related to the kangaroo and have their young in their vertical pouch. These marsupials run, bark, sing, and glide up to 500feet... yes...they fly. Social animals, not meant to live alone!
