Sugar Glider siblings and a new set of red males
Posted by: Mkpage319
Hello, as I mentioned in a previous journal entry I purchased two 2 month old siblings. I'm starting to get the feeling that they were 2 months old including pouch time as they are still wanting milk. How can you tell how old a glider really is?
The new gliders (red bellies) are far much larger than my husband's hand! The previous owners used these boys for breeding and didn't handle much, one bites fairly often, the other not so.
I would like to find two females to breed. One white and one white and creme.
My question is- as large as these new boys are will they hurt or try to over breed the females once I find potentials?
I am new to breeding. Any and all advice is welcomed.

2 month old babies
Posted by: Mkpage319
I have 2 two month old siblings. Are they still supposed to be on milk? Gliderpidea mentioned they are weaned at 16 weeks. Should I be giving them a milk substitute? I bought baby food and added a little raw sugar. They seem like they like it. I have tried to research what to feed them, but Google is no help. I stumbled upon this forum. Any advice is welcome!

Sugar Glider siblings
Posted by: Mkpage319
Hello All, I had a geriatric glider of 11 years, received her @ 3 yrs of age. She past today. I purchased two 2 month old babies yesterday. (I hvnt had babies) One male and one female. I was reading in the gliderpedia and it says they can mate at 4.5-6 months old. Will a bonded brother and sister mate? Is that a thing? Someone also told me that since they've been together since birth they will not mate. I'm totally not prepared to have babies having babies!! :0 with that being said, what do I need to do?? They are bonding with me already. I'm worried if I separate them they will become depressed and potentially mean.

Looking for gliders in Colorado
Posted by: mcrmygirl15
I recently adopted a female from someone who was unable to take care of her, and I am looking to adopt a single glider so she is not alone. Does anyone know of places in Colorado or breeders?

My bf and I both have a glider. I have a male. He has a female. Unfortunately we don’t live with one another. We got them bonded yesterday when they were just introduced for maybe the 4th time. Still won’t leave unattended. We are worried if we just let them have play dates so to speak would that cause depression in one if not both of them? We don’t want that at all. We don’t know if we should wait until we are able to move in with one another.

I’m feeling lost lately. I have two female sugar gliders, one that is 4 years old (Popi) and one that is 1 year old (Taz). I’ve had Popi almost her entire life, she had cage mate for over two years but the unfortunately she passed away. Popi was alone for a little while while I tried to find her a new buddy but now she won’t let the new baby into her cage. I had them separated for a couple days to acclimate and then gradually introduced them. They do amazing outside the cage but the minute Taz gets into Popi’s cage, Popi will chase her and try to fight her. I’m so lost because I’m afraid I’m not doing right by either of them. Please help.

HELP glider acting strange
Posted by: Dvasqu14
Sugar glider stopped eating playing moving two days ago. I stayed up one night with him and he began having seizure-like spasms. Took him to the vet and his blood tests returned normal as far as his glucose and calcium levels. His ears are still up and he moves around a little bit but still doesn’t behave like before. What’s wrong:(

Dying sugar glider
Posted by: Lovemypocketpets
Hi, everyone! I have a 6 month old female sugar gliders named Lilo, she’s been making this coughing noise and keeps opening her mouth as if she’s trying to get something out, she hasn’t eaten for 3 days, maybe a bite or two from a fruit and then she drops it, her breathing is kind of fast, not very active, her ears are down and I haven’t seen her poop, does anybody know what this could be or have any advice for me. I’m very sad, I took her to a vet which they didn’t do anything to help me but just refer me to another vet, I don’t know what to do at this point. Anything helps!! #128546;#129402;#128557;

Hi all ! First post here. I have 2 female gliders, Gizmo who is 5 and Gadget who is 1. Gadget is a sweet girl I have no problems with her. Gizmo is a different story I have had her 2 years and I don’t know what to do about her. She is mean to both me and Gadget for no reason. She hasn’t had a great past with her previous owner I’m almost positive that’s why she is the way she is. Gizmo does allow me to hold her and pick her up, she even naps with me. But she randomly burst into mean crabbing fits. She is territorial with her food, she crabs and is mean to gadget constantly. She will randomly get mad and try to bite and crab at me while she’s laying on me and I don’t know if y’all know any tips or tricks to tone her down a little ?

Introducing two females
Posted by: redhead174900
I currently have one female glider that has lost her friend :( . I am thinking about adopting another female friend for her but I have only ever had a male and female together. Are there any issues I should be aware of when introducing/housing two females together other than possible territorial actions during introduction?
