The cage that came with your sugar glider is most likely too small. Sugar gliders need space to glide and play. The largest cage you can find to buy is probably the smallest they should have. The minimum size your cage should be for a pair is about 32" x 20" x 36". The more gliders in your cage the larger it should be. The bars of your cage should be 1/2" wide or less and horizontal if possible because sugar gliders like to climb.

It is recommended to cover the floor grating of a typical cage with plastic square mesh to give the animals more places to hold and rest. It is also a good idea to use fleece cage accessories for temporary shelving to be used for lounging and landing areas.
