Have a quick question. About a week ago we got a new sugar glider (Artemis) and shes a complete sweet heart and in good health however after coming back from work today 1pm I noticed my other sugar glider (Nyx) eye is swolen. She is in no pain and it's only slightly stolen however I'm worried. I have 3 and they love sleeping in 1 pouch however all have their own one.
Any suggestions until Sunday as the vets are closed for the weekend here in the middle east?
Thanks a lot all

The hapless moth fluttered into the Sugar Glider cage and immediately got the attention of one of the Sugar Gliders. The Sugar Glider seemed to be triangulating on the moth with its ears as they flicked back and forth like some marsupial bat, and those wide open eyes were transfixed on the moth's every move as it tracked and zeroed-in on the hapless creature. Then in a lightning flash of movement, the Sugar glider lept into the air gliding easily to catch the moth in its front paws, while quickly zipping it into its waiting jowls just before it landed on the side of the cage. The moth was consumed in an instant and as fast as this all happened, all returned to normal as if nothing happened when the Sugar Glider gave a quick look around for more morsels, then continued its playing with the other two Sugar Gliders. Totally awesome! I had no idea they were that
into living insects. Inpressive...

Young sisters looking for a new home!
Posted by: mikalia603
I need to rehome my girls to a loving and knowledgable home because I am leaving for my college apartment. They come with their cage, food, and all accessories in the cage. They are both under a year and Phoebe is a normal gray and Chloe is a platinum. They have never bit me and always want to come out and play; super loving. I live in the Chester county area in Pennsylvania. Please email me if interested ( can send pictures).

Male parts hanging out
Posted by: momo1602
So my male has been having his male parts hanging out for quite some time now. It has been happening every day in the last week and I'm very worried all the time. So I check up on him every 4-6 hours. Every time I see his genitalia hangs out I always put some KY jelly and so far it always went back in. I have brought him to the vet as well and the vet doesn't see the problem because it keeps coming back in, but I'm really worried because it keeps on hanging out. And I always put some KY jelly every time I see it hangs out. Should I be worrying too much or it's normal? also how long does it take for it to go back in? and when should I help him after I see his parts hanging out, should I wait a day or couple of hours and let him do his own thing before putting the KY jelly? He also has a female cage mate by the way. Thanks for you answers

Excessive head rubbing
Posted by: Axlbabyglider
Just a question regarding gliders rubbing their heads. My boy Axl keeps rubbing his head on his pouches and the cage to the extent that he has a huge bald patch on his head. I personally think its because he can smell my other gliders as he's not neutered as he's slightly disabled on his back legs (but he's happy and adapted fine and gets check ups often from the vet). My vet doesn't see anything wrong with his health so he's fine in that aspect and he has a cage mate so it can't be depression or loneliness as I honestly do anything for him hes super special.
I just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced anything like this or if you know of any tricks or tips to help the hair regrow?

The tent playtime seems to definitely help with bonding to my little darlings.
I have this small 6'x6'x5' tent with a bottom in it, where I put an upside-down 5 gallon bucket covered by a pillow case inside it, that I next will capture my three Sugar Gliders, then put them all into it, with me, then zip it up tight and let 'em loose! My God this is so much FUN
My little lovely boy Sugar Glider Aerrow will climb the covered bucket and jump to me - still trying to get the two girls to do it. He's so smart, and will climb up my back to my head and make a leap onto the cube nest/bed I use to capture them in, which is hanging from the peak of the tent. Starling, the daughter, likes to run laps around the tent - SO MUCH SPACE! The mom, Piper seems to go from corner to corner, where she'll back in as a defensive move. - she still has a feral streak in her that I'm still working on.
All three will let me handle them in the tent playground without my fleece gloves - just bare hands and no nips/bites. I usually treat them all afterwards to some canned insects (grasshopper, wax worm, superworm, etc.) for being so good! I have to wear a long sleeve shirt to avoid their tiny little claws when they climb... We carry on like this about once a week, after I slide the tent to a new location to avoid impacting the grass too much.

Diet assistance for egg allergy
Posted by: Cookie bandits
I've taken in two gliders who were originally on pocket pets diet. The previous owner was informed of the dangers of feeding such a diet, and by the time she was looking to find them a new home they were eating cucumber, carrot and apple.
She informed me that my male was severely allergic to egg, which narrows the choices for a staple down to less than a handful. They are on Reep's and absolutely love it. Unfortunately the Ca:P ratio of Reep's is 1.2:1. I've been calculating day and night, rolling over in bed trying to create recipes of fruits and vegetables to bring up the calcium.
Does anyone else feed Reep's or have any thoughts on other staples that contain HPW powder, no eggs or a substitute for the egg offered by the creator?
These poor little guys have basically had a poor diet their whole lives (4 and 5 years) and I'm just trying to finally get it right, or at least do the best I can for them. If you could assist me or possibly point me in the right direction, I would be eternally grateful.
Thank you in advance for your time.
