The male sugar glider has a bifurcated genitalia. It consists of two shafts and is forked at the end like a snake tongue. The genitalia is long and pink, and looks similar to a long worm. If you see this, which you eventually will, Please do not cut it off; your sugar is healthy and normal.

I think it's a necessary post that Eric made. I know when I first saw Rocky's I had to take a double look just to make sure it was what I thought it was. As it turns out it was not a worm.

I am embarrassed to say that when I first saw Id's, I thought his intestines were prolapsed and I took him to the vet to have it checked out. The vet had a good laugh at my expense.

Good post, gave me a good laugh. I don't know about anyone else's males, but Maliika has his out ALOT. I'm always seeing it, and it does look a bit strange. You should have seen the look on my mom's face when she saw it and I told her what it was. She was like " but there's two!!!" it just made me laugh

ok, so if we "invent" a glider condom, are you really going to want to put it on your little guy EVERY time he's in the mood?

I am so glad this topic is discussed! When I first saw my Tigger's "private", I didn't know what to think! Watching a male clean himself can be quite traumatic for a first time male glider owner. But I think Tigger keeps this to himself now and only does it in his pouch because it has been quite some time since I have seen it. Glad Eric made mention about not cutting it off, although it scares me to think that someone might want to do that to a poor glider!

Well, I for one am glad that this was addressed. It wigged me out the first time I saw it because he was in the middle of cleaning it (looked like he was flossing his teeth with it!!!) & I thought he had split it in two with his teeth! I have also heard of a woman taking her male to a vet to have it put back in!! And the ignorant vet SEWED UP his cloaca!!!! my stomach turns just thinking about that poor little guy...........

THE HE/SHE???

Oh man! I have had my "Peanut" for almost 7 months. It was given to me as a gift from my sister (had a breeding pair). When she gave it to me she told me it was a girl. So one day I looked in "her" pouch (around my neck) and I saw this long, pink, forked thing coming out of her. I thought she had a prolapsed rectum or something. So I paniced and called 50 million vets, but no one would see exotic pets in the area. I thought my poor peanut was going to die. Because of this post, I feel much much better about all of this! Man, all of this time 'she' was a 'he'. Thanks for the heads up!

You just made my morning! I got my new baby yesterday (OK-he's not a baby really-5 months oop) and I've been up since about 4 watching him jump around. When he was cuddled up in the crook of my arm last night (obviously he's a BIG "Law and Order" fan like me...lol) he started grooming. JEEZ!! I had to laugh when he started his "personal hygeine"!! I called my husband who looked kinda jealous! Anyway, I figured out what it was, and no, I won't cut it off! Now I have to clean the coffee off the computer screen! Thanks!

Me, myself being a male would never do that to any other male glider... that would not be cool. I am glad i read this topic though because i plan on getting a male glider soon to go with my female and I will now know that it isn't a worm...lol!
