New Sugaaaah mama...
Posted by: SuzBoop
I crack myself up, thus the title... Anywho,
Hi!!! New sugar glider momma... Adopted my pair(Gizmo&Sugar Lips) last Tuesday. They are 3 & 2 yrs old. Got them from a private owner... She didn't have "time" for them. Ugh. Said she hadn't handled them in months & didn't really clean their cage. The boy, Gizmo, has a crippled front leg... So sad. She told me he "likes to hold his hand behind his back" no real hint of a handicap... BUT I don't care... He's precious & he's mine. So, I set them up, cleaned their cage, fed them, water... And let them adjust to their new home. I've wanted a pair for a decade now, and have done my homework... But will gladly take any advice!! :)

Olive's First day at work!
Posted by: BailierheaToday Olive came to work with me and she was the sweetest little thing! Never made a sound and woke up a few times throughout the day for water/food.
Today Olive had her first piece of an apple…I think we have a new favorite! She got so excited and kind of cooed…So adorable.
She adventured out of her pouch today and opted to sleep over my heart. I think this bonding thing is going well!

Olive has come to her new Home! excited new momma!
Posted by: Bailierhea Today I brought Olive home! She's a little apprehensive to come out of her pouch but she hasn't made any alarming sounds. Which is a good sign to me! lol
I've discovered that she loves oranges and likes to play around in my hair...She is super sweet and I cant wait to see how her personality develops.

My sugar glider bit me really heard today and drew blood... I am feeling discouraged. It is a challenge for me to get him into his bonding pouch. :(

Male now biting me!
Posted by: nicolet21
I have two sugar gliders both about a year old. I got the male first about two months ago and then when i noticed he seemed to be getting lonely i got a female for company. They both have been getting along great, and my male seemed to be well bonded to me but lately he has become really aggressive. he has been biting my fingers when he sees them and hard to the point where he draws blood. And sometimes when i open the cage door he actually jumps from the other side of the cage to try and grab my hand and bite me. I have no idea what could have caused him to start acting like this, because he wasn't like this before, i have held him in his pouch and doing my normal routine with him. Even when i have tried to give him treats lately he bites me not the food. He isn't neutered so I'm not sure if I get him neutered it will help at all?

Fighting or bulling
Posted by: LolaAndGabby
I have had a year old sugie and a 2 year old sugie, i have had both for a year, they new fought until a little while after having them both for a year. Gabby, the 2 year old, crabbs at Lola, the 1 year old, scaring her into giving gabby her food. i tried to read up on it but my sources are scarce, hardly any of the websites had nothing on 'fighting'. so now for 6 days a week i separate them into different cages, on the 7th night i put them together and see how long it last be fore they fight. the longest it has lasted was 2 weeks, should i be concerned?

Introducing male gliders.
Posted by: Ajittagoon87
I have two neutered males they have been together since before i got them two years ago. They are 21/2 yrs old. I recently took in a 4 month old male glider from someone who did not think they could take care of him:/ I got him neutered two weeks ago and he is growing, but he's still only about 5 months old. I want to introduce him to my other two males but have been waiting since he got neutered two weeks ago and I just don't want him to get hurt. Has anyone had success introducing a neutrered male to two neutered male pair? Also I have notice my two male pair have been trying to chew through r everything that the other glider touches. I don't know if it is stress or maybe they don't like him. Lol I put they cages by each other and my male pair will call out to him and make a hiss sound. But they do a bark and his at the end of the bark to talk to him. I only know this sound because when I first got my male glider pair I got them neutered and separated them for a week and they costantly called out for each other that way.

Question about female possible gland issue
Posted by: Smallshortness
So I have two sugar gliders barrett and Daisy, brother and sister barrett is neutered. I'm having concerns about Daisy i got her in May from the same breeder and I can honestly say I have never seen her make a good poo, not like her brother. When she climbs o the cage I can see her rear end and it pulsates from time to time and it is a whiteish clear color almost like she is trying to poo but can't. There is no discharge and she doesn't seem to be on any pain and she eats normal and is a fire cracker I'm just concerned about her rear end. My vet said she looked healthy, but the vet isn't experienced with sugar gliders beyond male neutering so I wanted to see what you guys thought. Agains she doesn't seem to be in any pain but I can't say I've seen her go poo more then a few chunks and sometimes connected by a stringy mucus.

can sugar gliders have gum drops

Hi everyone! I'm new to the group but have been reading a lot of your posts, which have been very helpful thus far. A couple months ago I started looking for a new cage, then decided to build my own as many of you have. It's been a long process but I wanted to share.
It does not meet the recommended depth but I believe it makes up for it in width & height. And judging by the jumps and glides and constant running & playing since I put my girls in it tonight, I think it's a big hit!
Sorry, I can't figure out why it keeps rotating my pics after they download
