This might be a really weird question but I've tried finding pics/videos on what it looks like inside a sugar glider pouch (without joeys) and I don't seem to find any, is there any that anyone knows of?

It's probably hard to find pics of it because when a glider doesn't have joeys, the pouch closes itself up pretty well. You can find pics of the "slit", but you can't really open the pouch to see the inside or anything. Even vets need to sedate female gliders to get a good look inside (like when they do pouch swabs), as the gliders can pucker them closed almost drawstring tight when they're being prodded at.

I've only seen the inside when my glider had joeys IP and she was holding her pouch open to clean it. It's sort of a red/brown skin color with some fur near the opening. She can fit almost half of her head in it when she's cleaning her joeys, but as soon as she lets go of it it closes right back up instantly.

Okay I was figuring that it was hard I was just trying to learn about the anatomy is all, I find it cute when sugar gliders clean themselves/joeys, thank you anyways!

If you look at my profile I have a pic of my momma glider with a Joey on its way to her pouch! That's the most "open" I've seen her pouch, when it was all relaxed in preparation for a Joey to crawl in. I tried to see if I had any better pouch pics but I don't.

Awe cute, I've seen videos of sugar gliders giving birth, they joeys look so tiny! I'm surprised they can move to the pouch even though the mom licks a pathway
 Look what I found on Ebay
