I'd guess not too many conlangers share their homes with sugar gliders. I have 4 that I will go on and on about if I am allowed the opportunity. (And I have MANY gerbils, 2 rats, and 2 dogs too... Keeshonden, for the curious. I *used* to have mice, guinea pigs, and a very spoiled, very loved Yorkshire terrier.) I'm just crazy about little critters, and animal names tend to be important vocabulary in most of my languages. Ea-luna was developed around a particular word list, so I have constantly been filling in gaps as I go along. I haven't done much with this language in the last couple of years, and looking at it now, I have plenty of work to be done. Mia natele-li-dina (mother of sugar gliders)
