Your morning adorable: Sugar glider eats an apple

January 12, 2010 | 12:01 pm

So-called pocket pets don't typically float our boat, but we are smitten nonetheless with Furbat the sugar glider.  Sugar gliders are marsupials native to Australia and New Zealand, although they're sometimes kept as pets elsewhere. (Incidentally, it's illegal to keep a sugar glider in the state of California.)

As their name would suggest, these little creatures are fond of sweet-tasting foods, and Furbat is no exception. He's shown above chowing down on an apple, but other favorites include bananas and baby food. (He'll even lick his fingers when he's finished eating!)
