live lives woodland trees


The pygmy glider lives in eastern Australia. The feather-tailed possum lives in New Guinea.

Both species in this family live in trees. Feather-tailed possums live in tropical rainforests and woodland areas. They are also sometimes found in suburban gardens. Pygmy gliders prefer forests that contain many eucalyptus (yoo-kah-LIP-tus) trees. They also live in other woodland areas.

Feather-tailed possums do not have any known significance to humans except to the scientists who study them.

Neither species of feather-tailed possum is considered threatened. They do not face a high risk of extinction in the wild in the near future.
