    Sugar gliders, adorable, big-eyed wild creatures known for gliding through the air and their love of sugary foods, might soon be even more well-known for their ability to tame a much larger member of the animal kingdom.

    Earlier this week, one of these cute possums opted to catch a ride on a different species during the daytime rather than “fly” on its own at night.

    Footage shared on Twitter captures the little, gray sugar glider “taming” a sweet, white kitten. After some brief resistance, the fluffy feline accepts its fate and proceeds on its stroll as the sugar glider rides atop it. 

    What a resourceful marsupial!
