: I am looking at buying a sugar glider, but can't decide if I should get a male or a female. The male I am looking at is pretty tame, and I would like to have him. But I heard they mark their territory. How bad is this? Will he do it for his whole life? If I get him neutered will it help? How bad is the smell anyway? I have done quite a bit of reading on the matter, but it seems I can't get a straight answer. The breeder told me that the male's scent is sort of sweet, and not very offensive. Is this true? I would appreciate some input.
: i have a male sugar glider I adore him he is so sweet. I notice he has a smell, but I think it is a personal issue whether or not it bothers you. I don't mind the smell at all. You always notice it, but it makes me feel more comfortable because I know he is there, and I know I have a friend around. There is nothing truly wrong with a male sugar glider,
