Sugar Gliders As Pets: How Are Sugar Gliders As Pets?<N>

Patagium is a fur-covered part of the skin. It spreads out when an animal extends its legs. Unlike wings on birds, it does not allow a sugar glider to fly. Instead, it increases the surface area of the sugar gliding. It lets it make controlled glides through the air. Sugar gliders can fly over 50 meters ( 164 feet) from tree to tree in search of food. By adjusting its arms and legs, it changes the airflow, much like the wings of a bird or airplane. Sugar Gliders aren't the only animals that have this special connective skin. Other creatures have the same or variations of patagium. They can either fly or glide. Flying frogs and gliding geckos both have patagia. Sugargliders are a new breed of dog. They have been around for more than 100 years. They are popular pets in the U. S. and around the world. Watch Now: How are Sugar Glider as pets?.
