They are not the same thing, we have flying squirrels native here and not sugar gliders.Are flying squirrels and sugar gliders the same thing?
they are not the same at all! sugar gliders are marsupials and flying squirrels are rodents. i don't think they look alike either. sugar gliders are generally black and white (with color variations possible) and flying squirrels are varying shades of brown with a white underbelly. the only things that look alike about them are their membranes used for flying and their big eyes that let them see at night. sometimes people mistakenly call sugar gliders flying squirrels, and flying squirrels sugar gliders, but they are definitely very different animals. and as far as being pets, there are lots of differences there too.
