We have had a domestic sugarglider for six months and
just purchased a new buddy for him. The new male glider is
straight from the wild. Stupid pet store, which knew nothing
about gliders, imports these poor animals when they could
just as well get domestic ones. Anyway, we rescued the little critter.
Now we need to figure out how to get the two into the same cage. The domestic one
doesn't appear to be the welcome wagon representative we thought
he would be. We have kept the new guy in a cage next to our
other guy for about a week now. He is not hand trained or
responding to hand feeding yet.
