Feathertail Glider – Acrobates pygmaeus

I had an early morning visitor in my bedroom on Wednesday –
identified as a Feathertail Glider – Acrobates pygmaeus or
Acrobates aculeatus.
Feather Gliders are the smallest of all gliders. They get
thier name from their tail which is flat with stiff fringed
hair growing horizontally either side all the way to the
tip.

Found good information on these gliders at
