Wow, it has taken me WAY too long to reply to this, sorry about that!
Thank you, now that I think about it spaying such a tiny animal like a sugar glider does sound pretty invasive and stuff.
So.. this thread is titled getting another glider, why not ask questions about that here ( because I don’t want ‘clog up’ the forum any more then I need to lol)
So basically, something came up where we * may* be getting another sugar glider sooner then I initially expected. I think I know about the 30 day quarantine period thing, and blanket swapping, pouch swapping, and handing the new glider treats and the very beginnings of bonding and stuff, but one thing I’m worried about is the fact that the new glider would obviously be completely unbonded at first. And after the first few days of leaving them alone to let them settle in, am I not supposed to let them out to play? Because I’m really worried if I happened to let it out to play, then I won’t be able to get it back into the cage, and she/ he would get really scared/ stressed Becasue I chased it around or something :(
Also: this is probably going to sound.. incredibly dumb, but..let’s say I got a female sugar glider, and she was in another cage, on the other side of my room, and there’s something over the cage or something so they can’t reach each other or something, and then somehow, my one ( male) glider finds her and.. Okay, is it possible for one glider to get a female pregnant through cage bars, if that makes any sense? ( wow, that is.. way worse then I imagined in my head) it’s just that I.. really, really,
don’t want to have to deal with a pregnant sugar glider and babies and.. ack DX don’t get me wrong, if somehow that happened, I’d still take care of them the best I could, but oh man, I.. just the thought stresses me out.
( I should probably mention we are planning on the male neutered VERY soon)
Which brings me to another point: when that happens, I think I’m supposed to take the wheel out of the cage, right? And do I still let him out after or leave him until he’s healed? ( how long would it take him to heal?)
And, ( one last thing, I promise) is there any way to prevent a sugar glider from starting to bite/ nip all the time?
I’m sorry this is all over the place, for some of these it probably would have been smart to make a different post, but.. yeah. Anyways, thanks and have a great day :)
