Chunnup

Winter May-July Cockatoo season Sugar gliders are native to #SouthEasternAustralia, a region that’s not really well known for getting very cold. As a result, #sugargliders can tolerate #temperatures up to 40 degrees Celsius (or 104 Fahrenheit). They do this by finding #creative ways to keep themselves cool, like licking their #coats and staying #hydrated. However, if a sugar glider is exposed to #coldweather, it will either seek a warm spot to #huddle in or enter a state of #torpor to #preserveenergy. Before the onset of torpor, sugar gliders drastically reduce their #activity and willingly lower their overall #bodytemperature. Unlike #hibernation, torpor only lasts for less than a day and allows the sugar glider to resume activity at any point regardless of the #weather. https://mercurypets.com/ https://animals.sandiegozoo.org/animals/sugar-glider
