A Glider's furry tail helps it balance when climbing, and helps steer when gliding. Its weakly prehensile- meaning it is capable of grasping and carrying nesting materials curled up in its tail, but not strong enough to hang from or hold much weight. Most Glider tails are equal to, or a little longer than the length of their body. When a glider is sleeping, they may curl their tail around themselves to help keep warm and cozy. In the wild, alot of Gliders have tails that are 'white tipped' (meaning they have a bit of white fur on the tip of the tail), its thought that its a form of distraction for enemies, or thought to distract / mesmerize prey. They will perform what some call the 'Snakey Tail Dance', when their on alert about something... they stick their little rears in the air and stick their tails high in the air and wave them back and forth in a snakey like motion. Interesting and entertaining to watch! :-)

* Never EVER pick up, or grab, a Glider by their tail (doing so could cause serious injury). If you notice any hair loss, or injury to the tail, an experienced Vet should take a look.
