Australia has two new marsupials

There are two more reasons to love Australia’s fluffiest aeronautical marsupials after the discovery that there are actually three species of greater glider, not one as previously assumed.

The greater glider is a possum-sized marsupial living in the forests of eastern Australia, squeezing into tree hollows during the day and at night soaring up to 100 metres through the air on the hunt for its favourite eucalyptus leaves.
