: I've been doing a lot of research on this lately, because
: I plan on getting either a sugar glider or a flying squirrel.
: I originally wanted a sugar glider, because they're more
: common, so I knew people who had them. Now I'm leaning more
: toward a flying squirrel, because from what I've read, they're
: cleaner, smell better, they go to the bathroom generally in one
: corner of their cage (like being naturally housebroken), and
: they're easier to take care of and feed. People think that
: sugar gliders are friendlier and bond better, but I think
: it's a myth based on two things - not as many people have
: flying squirrels, so people assume gliders are better pets,
: and it's far more critical, in terms of bonding and friendliness
: to get the flying squirrel as a baby than the glider. Also,
: they do cost marginally less, and it isn't quite so critical
: for them to have a companion, especially if they bond with
: you correctly.

: I also am looking for someone who sells flying squirrels -
: thanks for the link, I'll check it out.

: Good luck to you guys making a choice!
