: Im still not sure if I am going to get a glider (as much as I want one) I hear so many negative things about them. I have been told that they die rather eaily. If i do get one I am planning to build a cage that is 5x5' and 5 1/2' tall. I hope that they will enjoy something that size. Now the thing I wanted to ask is if any of you knew what makes better companion pets for just one person....Flying squirrels or
: Gliders... There is close to no information on FS's as pets but I know a breeder north of where I live. Oh and thanks to everyone thats been responding to my rather long questions. I need as much info as I can get.
i think that its all what u like and what u've had. What i mean by that is i've had lots of rodents and well i dont think another one would be that intersting(just cos i've had so many). Also its a size thing FS's are bigger but u sound like u can handle a big cage. I dunno but i think sugar gliders are sssssssssoooooooooooo cute. Also their diet is different so think about that(like FS eat mostly nuts and seeds). Cost i dont think is much of a factor cos they about the same.
Well let your heart chose cos they are very simmalar[other than 1's a rodent and 1's a marsupial(thats not the right spelling of course)]
I'm hoppen ya make the couse thats right for u!
