 When can I have play time?

Posted by: Chelsea03
I'm a new mom so bare with me please. I just got my little Enzo, I've had him for a week now. He comes up to me when he's in his cage climes on my arm, he bite my nail once but I think he was just trying to groom me because I had a hang nail? He kinda runs his teeth across me but it doesn't hurt and if it does I just psst him and he gets the point. Anyway I know play time is extremely important, when should I start play time? I just want to do everything right and I don't want him to get depressed. Oh and I plan on getting another one and introducing them I just kinda wanna get the hang of Enzo first. He's fine with my hands and arms going in and out of the cage, when I wake up in the morning he jumps to the front of the cage to greet me but when I put him in his pouch during the day he crabs at me. I don't know if its because I woke him up or he's scared. I can always quite it by just kinda pressing him into me and than he's fine after a little bit. So my question is at this point can I have play time with him? Or should I give him some more time to get use to me.

 Two males of a close bond

Posted by: Beryun
I have two male gliders both very well bonded to each other. I know this is probably going to get a bunch of Finger wagging but they are both intact as well. Before I get the lecture this whole story first. Loki is my first boy he is a gorgeous gray and sweet as can be but, he wasn't always this way. It took my lil guy months to warm up to me. The breeder I got him from was... Well I be polite and say very under qualified for even raising gliders. I was well aware about getting a new Joey also means that they will be scared of you for at least a few weeks. I learned the lies he told me the hard way. I was told he was 8oop but after having him checked by the vet and a fellow breeder that truly cared for gliders I learned he was only 5 maybe 6oop. That alone broke my heart I would have waited happily a few more weeks so that he would be fully ready to pay from his mother. And being told he was hand tamed oh it was clear that the lil guy had never been held by any person even his parents were scared of the breeder it seemed. I made sure I kept him on me at all times I know I amay have been scary but I was more than willing to take his biting if it meant that it would work out in the end. It was hard and irritating at times but he needed me more now than ever is what i thought. For a while I believe that he thought I was a monster. But then one day he fell asleep on my hand and without me pulling him out his bag. From then on it started getting easier then things started getting bad again. He didn't want to eat, or even drinking. I asked my reliable breeder contact and she said it sounded like depression. My heart again sank. I suffer from depression myself so I understood just how rough it must have been. I started looking everywhere for a female glider with no luck at least not in price range. I started to just looked for anything boy,girl, old, young, I was feeling kinda desperate. I found a breeder that had good reviews both by vet and clients. He had a boy Lue available and sent vids of the lil guy walking on his arm and hand. I was beyond happy. He even cut the price down for me after explaining to him my situation. And that is when I drove from Destin FL all the way to Miami FL. I had brought Loki and had divided the cage with a grid to safely introduce them but I also brought Loki pouch. For a while I had a angry white glider in the pouch but I did eventually let him in the cage. They..... really didn't like each other. But I had a method. For a week I had intro time in the bathroom playing reffery. And for 3weeks I had a lil cage in a big cage method to get them used to each other more. Yes I did wake up to crabbing but I was able to go in and check on them and know that they were both safe. Time went on and I was able to let them both be in the cage knowing that they wouldn't hurt each other. But then Loki got sick.i took him to the vet and thankfully it was just a cold but I still worried I upped their vitamins and made a lil chicken soup (suggest safe of course no salt or onions) and gave oranges to them. But what got me was I went to check on Loki one morning and saw Lucius (the new white one) grooming Loki. I then open the cage to get Loki who didn't mind only for Lucius to become protective and bite me. I would have been a bit upset any other time but seeing he and Loki had bonded made me smile I just petted Lucius and said "you're a great friend for Loki" and check Loki who seemed better than he was a couple days ago. After that I found then both sharing everything down to the meal worms. They both are now mature and Loki is the dominant one and Lucius is OK with it. Lucius let's Loki sent mark him which to me looks a bit funny. Sence they are intact males though I still check for any signs of injury but luckily I still don't ever find any. They both now like to bark at 12ish at night and I get up and have a sorry chat with them and they are happy. Lol now they both wake me up so they can go to work with me in the morning. I don't blame them loud kids and a pouty hubby I would want to go too.i have they both registered as e.s.a. services animals and my boss doesn't mind a bit. They have kinda grown to be a mascot for my work place. If I don't bring them I get asked if they are OK. And I tell them they are they just felt like playing a bit more that day and didn't want to make them stop. I have to say I feel really lucky to have these amazing pets these two are amazing and they never stop surprising me. Just like my kids except they don't get in as much trouble.

 Hair Loss/Scab on Back?

Posted by: SugarGliderGirl
Hello! My poor Acorn was suffering from low calcium so we took him to the vet and he's doing much better. But a few days ago I noticed on the pinch of his back there's some sort of scab thing forming and he's losing hair around it. There's also a bit of a scab forming on his ear as well. I'm freaking out a bit so if anyone has any tips to treat it PLEASE let me know.

 Fighting gliders

Posted by: Cepperson
My sugar gliders are very sweet and have never had any problems until recently. Both are female and are about 1-2 years old. It started when one (JJ) began taking the other's (Po) food and hissing at her if she tried to get it back. Then, JJ began hissing all the time around the cage at night. PO didn't even have to be near her. Sometimes JJ will even start crabbing at PO and start a fight. I'm scared one of them will get hurt. I also noticed that PO started to sniff JJ's bottom. I don't know if that will help the question but you never know#128514;

 Glider fighting?

Posted by: Glidergirl52
I have a glider named pixie not very sure how old she is recently I put a divider through a big cage. One side had a girl and a boy the other side had two girls and a boy. They crabbed at each other for at least a month but then they stopped so I introduced them and took down the divider. Now I've noticed the girl pixie on the side with just the boy has been starting fights with one of the other girls and she sleeps in the pouch alone most of the time but sometimes the guy (syd) sleeps with her. And she is having trouble hanging onto things now and she has lost her two front teeth. Do I need to take her to the vet or do anything special for her. Please help!

 2 Female Gliders. One's nice, one's not

Posted by: Petrilove
Hello! I have had my two females ( Petri and Darota ) for about three years now. Petri has always been a biter. and Darota has always been sweet. They have always gotten along but lately Petri has been chasing Darota all around the cage, hissing and crabbing at her until she chases her into her pouch. I have not changed their diet or anything like that.

I have tried all methods of bonding with Petri. I have bad tasting spray for my hands that was recommended at the exotic pet store and nothing works. I'm almost at the point of rehoming her and getting another playmate for Darota. I could handle it when it's just me but I really don't want Darota to be scared or get in a fight. Help!! Thanks.

 Glider fight: one dies suddenly

Posted by: Cte111489
Hi, so I'm at a loss. My gliders were in a fight. No matter what I tried I couldn't get them to stop. So I grabbed one and pulled him away from the other. The one I didn't pull was bleeding from his mouth but he is ok. Then other I placed on my bed and when I looked to check on him. He would not move, almost like he was paralyzed. He was breathing, he could bite, but that was about it. I don't understand what happened. Could I have squeezed him too tight and crushed something? I didn't feel as if I were too rough? Or could something had happened during the trauma of the fight? I am heart broken. I do not understand

 Two male sugar gliders need a new home!

Posted by: morganf
Hi all, I'm posting because sadly I need to find a new home for my gliders. I am going to college and will not be able to care for them. When I originally got them my sister agreed to take care of them until I got my own apartment but she has changed her mind and I've realized that as a college student I will be very busy and probably unable to take care of them as well as I should. They deserve love and attention, so that's what I want to find for them.

My gliders are both unneutered males and are white faced with a lighter grey coloration (possibly white faced blondes). I named them Jinx and Felix but obviously you could change their names. They are brothers about two years old so they have a lot of life ahead of them. I received them as a gift from my father so he has their birth certificates and more information about their lineage that I can provide you (I don't have them at this moment, but I will post more info once I do). They are both well socialized, but mostly with me, so they may take a bit of time to warm up to new people. They haven't bit me since I first got them except for small nips when they come up to greet you. They also have not crabbed at anyone since first getting them so they are pretty relaxed around people, and once you get to know them you can grab them right out of the pouch, no problem. Neither is super dominant over the other, although they occasionally bicker at each other (they have never intensely fought or hurt eachother). They also have never exhibited self harming behaviors which can occur, especially when unneutered. When I took them to the vet she said they were perfectly healthy and that they were "very well behaved for sugar gliders." They both are pretty relaxed and spend a lot of time snuggled up but they love to get crazy on the wheel and explore my room. Jinx is slightly lighter in color and has a larger white patch on his head (where his scent gland is). He is also a bit more timid and tends to freeze up when others are around, but once he is socialized with you, he will grow more comfortable. Felix is much more outgoing and loves to come to the front of the cage to greet people, especially if they have food (he is a bit greedy, but doesn't eat too much and is a healthy weight). Their favorite snack of all time is yogurt or yogurt drops (I usually feed them gerber brand yogurt) and their favorite fruits are mangos and blueberries (although, they make a bit of a mess with the berries. they'll eat the insides and throw away the skins). They both truly are wonderful gliders and are sure to steal your heart!

(Here is a link to a video of them on youtube if you would like to see more of them:

I'm not trying to make money off of them, but I also do not want to list them as completely free as to not attract the wrong type of people. I am listing the price as $500 for both of them (I will not give them away separately, as they are bonded) along with all of my supplies except for the cage (it is getting a bit old and they should have a new one). The price, however, IS negotiable. I just want to find them a good home. So if there is someone I feel is best for them, I may not ask for much at all.
The supplies I have are bonding pouches, pouches for sleeping in the cage, climbing ropes, food bowls, a water bottle (the other one is leaky so I am not giving it away, however, they should have two water bottles), and a cage set. I also have some padding for the bottom of the cage as well as some leftover cage cleaner and odor remover. If you would like my food supplies, vitamins, and beaba ice trays (I used all these to make the BML mix), you can have those as well.
I live in Bethesda, MD, in the Washington DC area, I would much prefer if someone would come pick them up, but we can work that out when the time comes.
Again, PLEASE only contact me if you know how to properly care for them and will give them all the love they deserve. I care for them deeply and hate to see them go, although I know it's for the best.
If you are interested, email me at or text at 301-275-0426. Please don't call, as I probably will not answer to an unknown number.
I hope to hear from you soon. Thanks!
