Today i was at the pet store, because i was buying a leash for my new comming ferret... and i took aa peak to see the animals they sell... And what i saw.... THEY GOT TWO BROWN-CARAMEL SUGAR GLIDERS! i found out they they are from czeck republik and they are miniature suugies (Do they evan exist?) Two females in too small cage with no shelter... and very wrong food - just apples and mealworms... I talked to some girl who works there, gave her some tips on how to feed them and stuff ... And they in the store dont know a thing about these guys

that is sad. s&s exotics have alot of the caramel gliders they get in. they are not from the czeck republik though. i have read she is a big mill breeder, wondering if she is selling these to the pet stores also.
caramel gliders are a little larger than our gliders and supposed to be more laid back. although coming from a pet store with no handling that wont be the case for these poor suggies.

Poor babies. Hopefully the girl in the shop can relay your tips to a new owner. Maybe you can give her the link to this forum or The Sweet Spot or even Glider Central.

So today i was at the pet store, i gave them tree recepies :) I had a chance to take both girls out... i think they are not joeys but 3-4 mounths old gliders :) They are not that brown anymore, grey and yellow belly :) and so not used to humans... i have to take them out with a blanket ... when i hold them i gave them some honey, witch i had on my finger :) The one was very nice but hard to hold the other bit me :/ i have them rearange the cage and now they can sleep in a flis pouch :D When i got there at the midle of the day they were awake :/
