Do male gliders pee and poop out of the same hole??? I just watched Blaze pee for the first time and it came out of the hole he poops out of. I told you it was a crazy question.

I feel dumb for not knowing this... LOL

Not really it just looks that way. They have a cloaca (I think I spelled that right?) and it sorta yes and sorta no. Sorry I know that this isn't much help. Males have a forked penis that sometimes comes out and looks like a piece of pink thread.

Basically, Yes. Both come out of the cloaca. The definition of Cloaca is: common sewer. While the actual "parts" are farther up inside, you will see both come from the same place--it is one of the ways a marsupial mammal differs from a placental mammal (you and I, cats, dogs, etc, have a placenta and grow to birth size inside the mother's womb. A marsupial is born incomplete, like an embryo, and must make the trip to mom's pouch, attach to a nipple, and there complete it's development) A just OOP (Out Of Pouch) marsupial can be favorably compared with a newborn kitten or puppy, with about two weeks until open eyes for both marsupials and placental mammal animals. In a female glider, that SAME opening is also used for mating, and the entrance to her reproductive system, and birth canal, is the cloaca, also. I hope this helps some.
