Sugar gliders are marsupials and are native to Australia.
The look similar but they evolved their adaptations separately like sharks and dolphins.
The sugar glider trade has been banned in many countries. Where still legal, many retailers have stopped selling them.
There are plenty of ways to feel special without inflicting oneself on a tiny cute unusual animal.
Why Sugar Gliders should not be kept as pets
Sugar Gliders are Adorable but Don’t Belong in Your Pocket
Not-so-sweet reality of Sugar Glider trade
So if you really think about it, any animal can be happy in captivity with some love, attention, and proper care. Although I would strongly recommend not keeping the next wild animal you see. XD
But thats just my opinion...... :)
In german they are called "Nacktmull".
"The giant anteater (Myrmecophaga tridactyla), also known as the ant bear, is a large insectivorous mammal native to Central and South America. "
Wolves go awoooo, coyotes go awaaaaa
also nice to see aggretsuko here
was honey glider.
Edit: it is called flying squirrel in english aswell aparently..
The sugar glider has a very distinct coloring on his head, with high contrast nearly black vs white. The flying squirrel can have a similar colouring, (lighter around the eyes with a darker triangle between the eyes) but much lighter, like beige and creme. (As in the picture you used) Gliders also dont have skin in front of their arms.
Plus even without colouring, just looking at the face it lookslike a flying squirrel to me, gliders have a bit of a tarsier feel to me.
Here is a comparison side by side
