Squirrel Glider Nexon Game

The Squirrel Glider is a type of Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.

Appearance

Squirrel Glider has gray hair which is tied into twintails. Each fades into black at the end - at the front, her hair has a black line in the middle, her middlemost bang fades into pink, and the corner of both her side bangs fades into beige. She wears a white ruffled headband with red ribbons. She has red irides with highlights, signaling her species of animal is not extinct. She has a beige furred collar, a one piece dress with a skirt, which is white but fades into beige at the middle and at the sleeves, which are rolled up. The skirt itself is red, and it has a ribbon of the same color. The dress is covered by a white ruffled half-apron with red buttons. She also has beige-black stockings, followed b y black heeled shoes. Like other Friends, she has traits of the animal species she once belonged to in her normal human form - in her case, that's a squirrel glider's tail and ears.

In Real Life

Squirrel gliders are small, mostly nocturnal marsupials native to Australia. They live on the trees in all kinds of dry woodlands along the East Australian coast. Their body is about 22cm long and their tail averages 27cm. They have grey, silky fur on their backs with a black stripe going down from the head. Their bellies are white or cream coloured and their tail is very bushy and sometimes black-tipped. Their diet consists of tree sap, resin, pollen, nectar as well as small insects and spiders, and depends on season and availability.

They live in small dens inside tree hollows, usually in small families consisting of one male and up to two females with their offspring. They can have up to two litters per breeding season with up to two young per female. The young will stay in their mothers pouch for around two months and will gradually leave their parents home range after a year. They have multiple dens within their home range for shelter and protection.

Squirrel gliders glide between trees to move between their dens and to look for food. They can glide up to 50 meters on flat terrain and up to 100 meters on a downward slope. They're very agile when gliding and can land on any tree with their claws which are also perfectly developed for climbing trees.

While the Squirrel glider is considered to be of least concern, there are various threats to the species. They often get stuck in barbed wire fences when gliding and they're vulnerable to newly introduced predators like cats and foxes. The squirrel gliders numbers vary depending on available ressources so degrading habitat quality through pollution etc. affects them greatly. Even when an individuals home range is being vastly reduced by deforestation, they will not leave the area.

Trivia

  • The squirrel glider is often confused with the sugar glider, which is only half as big and has a white tailtip.
