Sugar gliders mating

For humans the season of love might has passed. But for our animals the season of love has just begun.

Tonight we heard noises from the small mammals room and luckily found a pair of sugar gliders getting to mate. After a long rest since last year, two of the young adult males are mature now and started fighting for a girl. This is the dominant male who won the battle and then could not wait to start a vigorous mating, successfully.

Sugar gliders might look like rodent but they are just not as productive. They are actually marsupials from Australian forests. Litter size is usually only 1, or sometimes 2. Baby gliders are called joeys, like kangaroos and other marsupials. Joeys will stay in mothers pouch living and growing until they are completely weaned at 16 weeks.

i think human is the only animal need privacy for this. the critters don't really care you're watching, as long as you're not disturbing. instead, they like you to watch the fruit of their victory so they can show their power :)
