The Squirrel Glider (Petaurus norfolcensis) is a flying possum of the marsupial family Petauridae. It is one of the wrist-winged gliders of the Petaurus genus.

Like most of the wrist-winged gliders, the Squirrel Glider is endemic to Australia. It is about twice the size of the related Sugar Glider (P. breviceps). The Squirrel Glider eats mostly fruit and insects. They can glide up to 15 metres from tree to tree. They tend not to glide in captivity.

Similar species are the Sugar Glider and the Mahogany Glider.
