Greater Glider Animal

Greater glider animal Groups of scratch marks on tree trunks betray regular landing sites of the greater glider, the largest gliding marsupial. Like other tree-dwelling marsupials, it has sharp claws to grip bark, and 2 toes on the front foot oppose the other 3, giving a pincer-like grip. This nocturnal forager feeds in eucalypt woodland (not rainforest), preferring the tender young leaves of just a few eucalypt species. It forms female-male pairs, which share the same tree-hollow den for most of the year. The young spend 3-4 months in the pouch and then about 3 more being carried on their mother’s back, before gradually becoming independent at about 10 to 11 months. free slot machine games for fun best online casinos slot machines Online flash casino bonuses Paradise8 Casino No Deposit Bonus
