An exhibitor at Festival on the Trails shows off Pocket Pets. Also known as Sugar Bears or Petaurus Breviceps, the animals are a small species of tree dwelling marsupials. As pets, the tiny creatures are content to be carried around in pockets and pouches. The pets grow to approximately 5-6 inches and weigh about 5 ounces.
