Boop's got a cute future ahead of her.

Boop the baby feathertail glider fell from her mum's pouch when her eyes were barely opened, but luckily, she lives near Australia Zoo, with a vet onhand.

Weighing less than 1 gram, she is one of the smallest patients at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, and is receiving round-the-clock care by a specialised wildlife carer until she is ready to return to the wild.

She's pretty cute now but when she grows up, she'll get a full feathery tail to help her balance as she glides through the treetops.

Fully grown, they're only 8cm long at the most but what they lack in size they make up for in flair.

Seriously, check out that tail.

Look at that tail!

It's so, feathery and elegant.

If you can get over this tail you are a stronger man than me #feathertailglider

Something a little more cute and fluffy. We found this feathertail glider while out frogging the other night. They're the smallest glider in the world and are the size of a small mouse. So freaking cute 😍
