Squirrel Glider from a cardboard box.

A Squirrel Glider Petaurus norfolcensis (endangered in Victoria) held by Deb Fowler of Bohollow Wildlife Rescue, photographed  by me in Kotupna Victoria 2015. This little chap had been injured and was ready for release.

He’s some progress photos of how to make a Squirrel Glider from this…

So here’s my progress so far:

glider prog 1

A basic shape

glider prog 3

Building up a shape

glider prog 4

Adding limbs and looking at posture

glider prog 5

Modifying head angle and increasing tail size

glider prog 6

glider prog 9

Starting work on tail detail (very time consuming)

More about the species and some amazing efforts to minimise road casualties can be seen at: https://lifeontheverge.net/tag/road-ecology/

I will post more progress photos in the coming weeks.
