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.
