Meet Wallace and Gromit, the Sugar Gliders

We had some unusual visitors recently - two sugar gliders, called Wallace and Gromit, pictured here with nurse Sioned Owen. 

Sugar gliders are small marsupials, ie they have a pouch to rear their young. They are called sugar gliders because they have a fold of skin from their wrist to the sides, so they can glide from place to place when their arms are stretched out. They are nocturnal and very sociable. And very cute!
