Wildlife Collective
Wildlife Collective is a blog created by Marta, a twenty-three year old wildlife conservation/zoology enthusiast. This blog was created for purpose of sharing photos and information about some of the most beautiful creatures that we share our planet with.

A big thank you to my dear friend James for making my banner for me!

Yellow-Bellied Glider
Petaurus australis

Yellow-bellied gliders are marsupials found only in eastern Australia. They are able to glide from tree to tree over distances of more than 100 metres at a time. Yellow-bellied gliders depend on eucalyptus trees for food and bite into the trunks to extract the sap. Being nocturnal, they sleep in leaf-lined dens in hollow trees during the day.
