Some 3 years ago,my father gave me a pair of sugar glider, both males.. I'm not sure of their actual age but they were young for sure..I am stranger to sugar gliders and am too scared to play with them, what more touching them with my bare hands, so I usually just feed them and talk to them without any bonding.. Unfortunately, one of them was attacked and killed by a wild monkey. Someone told me that sugar gliders can easily get depressed if they were left alone so my uncle gave me another male sugar glider as a companion the other one.
At first when I kept both of them in a cage together, there was no sign of barking or any fighting..But after a few weeks I realized that the new sugar glider was having a bald spot and its getting bigger and bigger gradually. One night i noticed that my old sugar glidder was biting the fur of the new sugar glidder at the upper head which explains why this big spot occurred. I got no choice but to separate them. Soon after, I realized both of them were depressed since one of them hardly goes out from his pouch and while the other one doesn't seems to have any appetite to eat.
I tried to touch them with my gloves on, even though they dont bark at me but they were not bonding with me either. I watched one youtube channels and one of the expert saying that it is better to bond with a happy and paired sugar glider. So I'm not sure whether should I just continue bonding with them one by one first or should I try to make them get along together first? Please could someone give me some advice on this issue....
