An arboreal, nocturnal inhabitant of wet and damp sclerophyll forests of eastern Australia. The Greater Glider (Petauroides volans) is Australia’s largest gliding marsupial, roughly the size of a cat. It comes in two colour forms – dark brown and grey/white. It can glide for over 100m in eucalypt forests where it eats only eucalypt leaves and buds.
