Feather-Tailed Glider
Vanessa also introduces a tiny, nocturnal feather-tailed glider, the smallest species of glider in Australia. "They have a flap of skin that runs from their wrist all the way down to their ankle and that works kind of like a parachute," Vanessa says. "These little fellas will glide from tree to tree."

Their sticky feet also help them climb trees...and their handlers!
