We bought a Wooden wheel off the internet when we got our
sugarglider Skipper. He just loves it. Even six months later,
he runs in his wheel.
We are not affiliated with the company that sells or makes
the Wooden wheel in any way.
I would highly recommend the wheel for anyone with sugargliders
for exercise. They'll love it.
: I know I haven't posted for a while, but don't worry. All has been going fine. I have been feeding clowie mixed veggies and fruits, either some hardboiled eggs or meal worms, and a constant supply of dried food (it is a parrot food called fruit frenzy) and she seems to be doing fine. I have stuck with the reptovite sprincled on her fruits and veggies, and this too has seemed to work. I haven't tried any of the special recipies like leadbeaters mix mostly because I don't want Clowie to become dependant on such a specific type of food as I have heard some peoples gliders do. I am going to start building her a new and improved cage soon as we are moving, but for the time being, she is happy and all is well. I take her around almost everywhere I go, and normally she is content to sleep in my pocket. She is still not willing to jump far, and I have not seen her glide. IS THIS OKAY FOR A NINE MONTH OLD GLIDER? I capitalized that to draw attention for any who are skimming. Here are my questions....
: -Where can I get a glider appropriate running wheel or directions on making one?
: -how can I help her to start gliding without scaring the living bejezus out of her?
: -And Finally, does anyone know where I can find a list of, or simply a contact for, any breeders in the St. Louis area. I dont want to go to a pet store, both because of bad things I've heard about and also due to their ridiculous price. I don't think 250$ sounds like a good price, but I NEED a companion for my Clowie....
: Thanks in advance!! :)
