have any of you had the problem (sorry I cant remember the clinical term) where it comes out and wont go back in. My poor little baby has had surgery twice now for it and tonight I had to take the stitch out because he couldnt poo which the vet said might happen and if it did to take the stitch out or if it was during the day bring him in. I am worried I am going to have to put jim down. :( any ideas what might help?

Thanks for the info Eric and everyone. I just got my sugarglider today and he's a male. I haven't got a chance to interact with him yet because I read that when you get a new sugar glider that you should leave it alone for about 2 days. So now that I know, I won't have any questions.

when my freind tried to pull her male sugar gliders off she ended up selling him I think she thought she might not have known as much as she thought on sugar gliders

If anyone is interested, there is an excellent picture of the sugar glider's bifurcated genitalia--really, the 'full monty'!

You can see it in our Glider Anatomy Gallery (www.glideruniversity.org/anatomy) here:

Eric's definantly right--DO NOT CUT THIS OFF!

Could be worse... when I first brought my male chinchilla home, somehow none of the people I talked to remembered to tell me about "hair rings". It turns out that male chinchillas will get hair trapped under their foreskin when the genitalia retracts, and this hair will form a tightly woven ring that constricts blood flow and can cause serious health problems. Therefore, once a month a responsible chinchilla owner will pull the male chinchilla's genitalia out by hand, examine it thoroughly, and remove any hair ring. The first time I found that out I thought somebody was making it up (although it didn't take very much research to fing out that it was, in fact, the truth). It turns out that my male is prone to them, so there I am, once a month, removing hair rings. What I wouldn't give for his genitalia to only have an unusual appearance... =P

Just hope when he plays w/it, it goes back in!!! i'm not kiddin My grouchy was supposed to be a female, you could only imagine what i thought after giving her a cherry w/stem the night before. turns out she is a HE...he played a little too long, genitalia became prolapsed vet tried for 2 weeks to get it back in. HAD to have it cut off or he would've died! rerouted his tube through (excuse the lang) his butt hole and neutered the poor fella at the same time!!!!!!!!!!
To top it all off the old fart who i bought him from broke his tail in the process so also had to have the black part of his tail amputated.... wouldn't you be GROUCHY...........
but this was well over a year ago, so my sweet baby girl turned out to be an adult male w/a prolapsed genitalia and broken tail. now he is a he/she. we call him GROUCHETTA......

HA HA HA HA HA!!!! I don't think I have seen a funnier post ever. I do think it is very necessary especially after reading others concerns on the matter but I have to say as a old glider gal I could not stop laughing when I read this. Please don't cut it off! He might definitely be a bit crabby, wouldn't you be?

After reading what u sent in about the genitalia thang.It helped me out, because if I had seen that before knowing about it, I probably would have tried to pull it off or cut it off.

Thank you for having this topic on here... I've been so weirded out since I saw Furby's 'wee-wee' I didn't know what was going on.. Why did my sugar glider have to be deformed and have two of them.. Ha. I feel like a dork now. LOL Well now I know and I don't have to freak out as bad every time it comes out when I pick him up. It just drives me crazy because he has to touch me with it.. Ewww.. Well that's it.. Bye

I am a new owner as well and I have posted twice on this site yesterday.
I have read all of this about the genitalia and I did notice "Kazoo's"
and I knew what it was.
But, like the last post. He does touch me with it while I am playing with him.
Is it usual or unusual that it leaks some sort of clear liquid while he is excited from playing and jumping around?
It is not very much but I did notice I had some clear liquid drops on my hands....???

The breeder I got my babies from said one of his clients called a vet and they told her to cut a piece off and bring it in. Thank God she called him first before she did it.
 Look what I found on Ebay

Don't laugh when he says people try to pull them off thinking they are worms or something. I was fairly new to gliders and my male has two long pink things coming out. I had NO idea what it was (I thought maybe worms) but definetely didnt want to pull it out incase it was the genitalia and sure enough it was...the lady I found this out from told me a guy pulled his gliders right out thinking it had worms and has to take it to the vet to get stitched.

Do neutered males still have the "forky Thingy"? I know they dont have the sent glands and the pomspoms.

Neutering does not involve removing the genitalia.
