Subject: Male Introduced to female with joeys already in the pouch, and now they are gone...
Posted by Lisa on September 20, 1999 at 19:00:53 from

I have a male glider who showed up on my porch a few months ago, I bought a female with 2 joeys in the pouch. The pouch is now empty. He showed MUCH interest in the pouch, and she turned away or 'sneezed' at him. While both were in the pouch, they did mate.

There are no pelts or evidence of consuming the joeys, but they are definitely no longer in the pouch. I am wondering if anyone has heard of anything like this, and if this will be a problem when she produces joeys with this male. ANY response would be appreciated.....
