Maine's Only Breeders of Sugar Gliders
In an article for the Bangor Daily News Hannah Lazaro describes the animals she breeds, known as sugar gliders, as "In the night time they're like crazy little monkeys. In the daytime they're like a pet potato." They are chipmunk-sized marsupials that can glide up to 150 feet and are common in Australia, Madagascar, and Indonesia.
Now, thanks to Hannah's Island Gliders business, they can be found in Maine too. She initially learned about them on Animal Planet, and began her own breeding operation a few years back. It's the only sugar glider operation in the state and they sell for between $250 and $1,500. See photos, video, and find out more about these adroable animals at the Bangor Daily News.
