i should start a journal
Posted by: BYK_Chainsaw
Riggs is doing great. He will take a treat then just jump on my shoulder out of the cage. But then he goes to the floor and runs away, the guy is a real little explorer. I let him check out the bedroom for awhile. I been picking up some of my gliders (i mean my wife's gliders hehe), trying to get them less nervious about being picked up.
Big mama continues her long slow progress, letting me pet her and showing less interest in biting then ever before. Someday she won't run away when I pet her outside of the pouch and she doesn't have a treat.
before work took new glider out for a moment, mary took off to top of cage, but took a few treats without biting. gus sat on my hand and got a few yogurt drops. Gus is a great glider
journal time - had a small scare the other day. got home from work in morning and one glider was awake. so gave him a treat, next thing I know I have four looking for a few treats. I put them back in cage and started eating/dog walking/ and getting ready for bed. Right before bed, I did a quick head count (I had the cage door open awhile giving them treats and pets). 3 in pouch, 1 in food bowl and one in other pouch...5, I need 6.
I did the count 3 more times and only 5 gliders. looked over cage, and 5. just about the time I was going to call the wife with a missing glider alert... I spot number 6!!. We have a small plastic toy in cage, looks like a watering can for flowers. We put treats in the cans and they get the treat out going halfway in, but never have they gone all the way in, and he was sitting in it like he was driver a car. But I found him!

I need a good diet that I can freeze
Posted by: GliderMoM6
I currently have 6 gliders 3 adults and 3 of their babies, planning to have dad neutered next week! (I think there are more babies coming!) anyways right now I feed frozen mixed veggies, frozen mixed fruits ( strawberry,banana,peaches, also fresh fruit like apple, oranges along with a pellet food that has fruits in it, I Also give some yogurt, baby foods and watermelon and other fresh fruits on and off, they all seem to love the variety, I also include a small pinch of calcium powder sprinkled over all every night at feeding, oh, they also get the HPW that I make into ice cube trays, I would like to streamline and make something that I can freeze , so can all this be blended and frozen into ice cube trays?

New sugar glider nibbles
Posted by: Gizmo97
My gliders name is gizmo he is about 12 weeks and he's kind of difficult to bond with ( not that I'm complaining ) he bites a lot. I've started putting my hand in the cage and letting him smell me and make the first move but sometimes he bites me! I know they do that, I've researched it. He will start by nibbling but then will bite down really hard. Is this going to stop when he bonds? He crabs once and a while but no where near as much as he did when I first got him. He will also bite when he's just walking around on me. What do I do when he bites me? ( besides not flinch)

Sugar Glider Aging
Posted by: GliderGossip
I have a 7 year old sugar glider, he will turn 8 in August, and I've noticed that he is starting to get random gray spots on his fur and has lost a little fur under his eye. Should I be concerned or is this just aging?

Dry Food Options
Posted by: LittleFoot
I am curious on what everyone feeds their suggies for dry food. I have been feeding Littlefoot Vitacraft Vitasmart. Not sure exactly if there are better/healthier options for food. I want the best for my baby.

New (and first) suggie. Please read and offer advice!
Posted by: Aesthetic_Lunacy
Hello! My name is Chelsea and I recently adopted a rescue glider. She is very sweet but shy, which is understandable due to how she was raised. I have wanted a suggie for years and have done thorough research. I was wanting to ask about bonding tips. Don’t get me wrong, she is doing very well after only just over a week and a half; however it is never a bad thing to know too many good suggie facts! She is 2 years old, and when adopted she didn’t even have a name #61516; (I have named her Ruby). She was semi properly fed, and received her calcium and such, but it was a very boring diet. No real variety. She also had NO toys at all spare a single plastic chain laying on the ground and one pouch that was made of a very tread based material that was very dirty. No bedding in her cage, just the plastic pan underneath, and no love.. She had a mate but he passed away, and she was very lonely, never played with, and was just a decoration… Upon receiving her she got a totally remodeled cage complete with 2 different pretty fleece pouches I made her, a hammock, a fleece braid, a “parrot” swing, rodent safe running wheel, tree stump hut with fleece strips, a fresh wide tube, 2 cage length perches, and I have a hanging treat puzzle box on the way, 2 more hanging toys, another perch, and my son graciously gave her one of his old baby toys. A rolling dump truck (which she plays with every night). I am currently making her a second set of fleece things to use for when I change out her stuff and wash them. She gets a variety of fresh fruits and veggies every night with either chicken or egg (turns out miss Ruby loves celery), and every day when I come home from work one of the first things I do is talk to her and give her a few pets and a treat. She is still skiddish, which as I said I understand, but she hasn’t crabbed at me since her 2nd day here and will calmly sit in my hand and munch on her treats. Baby steps. I plan on adopting her a new friend once funds allows such and once she is more comfortable here. Sorry for the rant, I am just very excited and proud of my Ruby. ANYWAY… Does anyone have any bonding advice, toy suggestions, treat suggestions, ANY suggestions? I have done my research well, but you can never have too much information! Thank you all!

So I made my babies, Goku and Vegeta, a "tie knot" cage cover to keep them warm at night. When I wake up in the morning, many of the knots are untied. Obviously they enjoy the knots as a game. Any suggestions on a toy that I could make them with knots??
