The scientific name for Sugar Bears is Petaurus Breviceps, which is a species of small and tree dwelling marsupial. They are mainly native to countries, including Australia, Indonesia, New Guinea, and Tasmania.
Sugar Bears are known by this name because they are fond of sweet food and, also, they love to glide even from a height. These Sugar Bears are also known as ‘pocket pets,’ because of the following two reasons.
Firstly, they are small in size and, secondly, they like being carried in pockets or pouches. That is why many Sugar Bear owners keep these charming animals in their pockets to carry them wherever they go. These cute little critters are marsupials, which are young ones that are born immature.
These immature babies develop in a mother’s punch until they become capable of surviving even without their mother’s body. These pocket pets are approximately 5-6 inches long and weigh around 4-6 ounces.
