Question/Why does my sugar glider make a popping sound


Aiden's first night, devouring a grape

Sugar gliders make a wide variety of sounds. Some sounds are heard only in specific circumstances while many others are used for various reasons. "Popping" is a very faint sound that you can only hear with your ear very close. It is commonly heard through the pouch while sugar gliders are inside slumbering, cleaning or just interacting with each other. It is also heard sometimes while eating; "nom nom nom". It is known as the "Happy sound" and has been referred to as purring. Popping seems to suggest that the animal is content in whatever it is doing.

Do not get this confused with clicking which is much louder.

Here is a sound file that has been highly filtered to remove everything else but the faint popping.
