When Marsupials Fly: The Eucalyptus Forests of Australia

Synopsis
When night falls on the forests of Southeastern Australia, where Koalas munch on eucalyptus leaves by day, it becomes a kingdom of flying marsupials. The two largest species are the yellow-bellied gliders and the greater gliders. Both are arboreal, but while the yellow-bellied gliders have a sweet tooth and feed on flower nectar and tree sap, the greater gliders eat eucalyptus leaves. NHK's high-sensitivity camera vividly captures the amazing aerial spectacle of flying marsupials at night.
