i resently got two male sugargliders. they are ten weeks oop. i have had them for two weeks. baby has warmed up to me. he has started to groom me, and sit in my hands. i have begun to take him into the bathroom and let him explore. However, today, everytime i put my hand's in his cage, he pees on them. Is this normal behavior for my sugarglider, or his he tring to mark me? I did notice that if sweet pea tries to sit in my hands to eat, baby will knock the food off my hands so sweet pea jumps down. is baby jelous of sweet pea? any advice is helpful.

Thisis his way of marking you as "his". Also, gliders cannot be "potty trained". they will pee and poop on anyone or anything at anytime.

Gliders always do their duty when they first wake up too. If they are just waking up, this could be why and sometimes they will do it to mark you too. If they`re just waking up, set them down and let them do what they have to do and you should be all set for awhile.
You never know, one may want all your attention, could be jealous (possibly), just make sure u pay the same amount of attention to both, don`t favor either of them. If you take one out of the cage, you should take them both out, don`t leave one in the cage, this could cause big problems.

Thank you. The male who pee's on me favors me. he will pee on me then i stop playing with them and wash my hands, when i start to play with them again, he pee's on me again. i guess he is marking me. i try to play with them both equally and carry them around during the day. however the other male perfers my husband and does not want me to bother him. however i insist on both of them liking me.

It's a sign of honor. I hope you appreciate it :). Seriously, some people never get used to it, and often end giving up their gliders. But for those of us who love gliders, it's just part of the deal.
