A Sleeping Sugar Glider

Johnny Cash, a full-grown pocket pet sugar glider (Petaurus breviceps), sleeps peacefully on my wife's hand during a pocket pets demonstration at Neptune Festival on Virginia Beach ocean front, Va. on Sept. 29, 2007. An Australian marsupial, sugar glider is 6.3 to 7.5 inches (16 to 20 cm) in length, weighs between 3 to 5.3 oz (90 and 150 grams) and live up to 10 to 12 years.
