TWO orphaned sugar gliders have found a life-long home at Moonlit Sanctuary in Pearcedale.
Sisters Sukari and Patch were orphaned when their mother died while they were still in her pouch.
Keepers at the sanctuary had to raise the pair by hand, feeding them with a syringe rather than the conventional bottle.
Chief ranger and chief executive Michael Johnson said the cute pair have been growing rapidly.
“As both of them have passed the critical weight of 80 grams they have moved onto solid food and are growing well,” he said.
“Sukari and Patch will stay at Moonlit Sanctuary and help to educate future generations of school children in the Moonlit Sanctuary School programs.”
