This is serious, it seems funny but the first thing the lady who sold me my gliders said was that he does not have worms, and that it was his genitals. She said she had thought it was a worm and tried pulling it out. She said the glider screamed and she drove to the vet to get it dewormed and the vet laughed at her hysterically. She educated me for a good 5 minutes on the glider reproductive system. I have to say I am very glad she did. After I saw it for myself I have to admit if I was never educated I would have thought it was worms too and would have attempted to rescue the little guy. When the poster said do not cut it off I dont think he was talking about neutering the guy I think he was talking about mistaking it for a worm and removing the worm from the glider. knowledge is power.

Every time I read the subject matter for this thread it just makes me cringe! It must be a guy thing.

Cut it off? Please tell me no one has actually done that! Although, it is alarming seeing it stick out of their cloaca... like something is wrong!

Am I the only one who assumed it would be his weenie? I mean, marsupials have some bizarre parts anyway...

Story time, I remember not long after I had got them a friend of mine was over and when we went into the room he goes "whoa are that sugar gliders? Those things got two dicks" and I was shocked and was like "what?" A Google search later I saw all the pictures I needed to see and I feel fully educated in the sugar glider male reproductive system.
And I peeked in the bag and saw one of them grooming their scrotum for the first time, how he could just grab it and pull it to his mouth. I thought he had a treat in his mouth and I was like "where did you get that?" I now know where he got it.

I have read this many times (I've read every glider thing I've come across on the web) - "don't cut it off", "don't pull on it" etc. Why on earth would anyone want to cut or pull on it?

OMG! I now have 3 males. So much to LOOK forward to! Seriously though, good post but I am a nurse and I have seen ALOT of human stuff but I still would have been thinking intestine or something if I hadn't read up on the glider anatomy. Just my opinion, but knowing your new pets anatomy is an important part of pet owner ship. Prior to owning, just as diet, housing, cost, etc. But, I did Lab rescue for years and years and it just blew my mind how many people buy animals on a whim and then when they get too big for an apartment or knock over things/children, well "I just didn't know he/she got that big". Venting sorry!

Welcome smmt!
Gotta tell You.. your lil' guy still has both genitaliaes..Only his testicles were involved in his neutering.
I was mentally prepared (I thought) to see it..Curious even..But when I walked by, as Widget was cleaning himself..I did a triple take!
Reminded me of skinny earthworms...ewwww!!

I have a male and i just wanted to post to the person who saw their baby "cleaning it".. just a head up lol... its actually him masturbating.. if u research it, when they kinda do a flossing of their teeth with it its actually that lol..
when i first got Gucci, a few weeks into it i saw it in his pouch and i thought it was a string, when i realized it was attatched i was so taken back lol.. a week later when i saw it again i saw there was 2 and i went straight to google bc i wasnt sure if i was seeing things correct or if i was going crazy. sure enough it was what i thought it was and i was laughing with my family for a good week about it haha
