My friend has had two Sugar Gliders for about a
year now they have not been tame they were not born in
captivity. They live mostly in a thick cloth pouch, like a
large pocket hanging from the top of their cage. Yesterday
noises were coming from their pouch and she looked in and
found two babies. One looked bigger but later that day when
we went back and looked the smaller one died while we were
holding the pouch. We moved the pouch around quite a bit
but did not touch them. We removed the dead baby and the
larger one was moving around a lot and tring to climb out
of the pouch. He didn't have his eyes open or much hair
but he looked pretty well developed. The next day she
found him also dead and obviously either disposed of or
killed by his parents. Do you think that our disruption
caused them to stress out? Why would they have survived
two or three months and then both die in one day? I'm
looking for answers to better our next effort. Please
respond and send me and information you think I might need
to better my chances. I would love to know more Web Page
Addresses. Thanks, Jennie.
