The Yellow-bellied Glider (Petaurus australis), also known as the Fluffy Glider, is about the size of a rabbit, and has a grey-brown back and is off-white to orange underneath, with large pointed ears and a long tail.

The Yellow-bellied Glider is the largest species of Petaurus, and can glide up to 150 metres.

It is similar in appearance to the Mahogany Glider, although slightly larger in size, and also similar in appearance to the Greater Glider.

The Yellow-bellied Glider is gregarious and spends the day in a leaf-lined tree hole, which is usually shared with other Yellow-bellied Gliders.

Although the Yellow-bellied Glider has a narrow range down eastern Australia, reaching from northern Queensland to Victoria, it's status is classified as uncommon to rare, and it is vulnerable in the topics.

The Yellow-belled Glider's diet consists of nectar, honeydew, insects, pollen and Eucalyptus sap (which is obtained by the Yellow-bellied Glider biting a 'V' shape wedge into the bark to promote the flow of gum and sap).

Breeding occurs in spring in the south, but throughout the year in the north.

There are two subspecies:

Petaurus australis australis in the south (which is locally common)
Petaurus australis reginae in northern Queensland (which is rare and threatened with logging)
