Posted by: TheDistinctiveDog

Hi there everyone!! Im getting a pair of male Sugar Gliders next week and im preparing their cage now! Im makes a 21w 42l 50h cage for them. I am making it from untreated wood heres the link to the wood i bought, www.homedepot.com/p/2-in-x-3-in-x-8-ft-Pet-96-in-SPF-Kiln-Dried-HT-2-PREM-PW-Untreated-Lumber-77700043/300714413 and im putting a polyurethane coating over it so it wont soak up the pee and smell gross. This is what im using to coat the wood, m.lowes.com/pd/Minwax-Polycrylic-8-fl-oz-Satin-Water-based-Polyurethane/999914423?cm_mmc=SCE_PLA-_-Paint-_-InteriorStains-_-999914423:Minwax&CAWELAID=&kpid=999914423&CAGPSPN=pla&store_code=265&k_clickID=2c2480f0-9bc0-4ac0-94db-d7bedb12a08e&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIr63NktHH3QIVgiZpCh1I6AFBEAQYAiABEgLzCfD_BwE im not sure if this is safe for Gliders or not i saw a few recommendations for this stuff for glider cages but im still wary. And finally the mesh im using www.homedepot.com/p/Tenax-3-ft-x-25-ft-Black-Poultry-Hex-Fence-206866/100384028?MERCH=REC-_-irg_aic-2-_-100384025-_-100384028-_-N I couldnt find anything with smallers holes what are your thoughts on this mesh?? Any other recommendations?

 Questions About Sugar Glider Diet

Posted by: I AM THE BANANA FISH
-----
Hey I am about to get a suggie and have a question, I think I know the answer... but can I feed a sugar glider chicken and/or egg (or any other protein food) instead of grubs or crickets. I do not have a phobia but just think it would be easier if I didn't have to feed them insects. If I do need to feed them insects that is doable.

Also I will be using sugar glider pellets (as well as fruits and vegetables) will that provide them with the protein they need, or do I still need insects (or other protein foods?)?

Hi I am about to get a sugar glider and would like to know all the tips, tricks and vital information. I have done a lot of research and am confident in getting one, I am an experienced pet owner.
I will also be making my own toys, is there any toy making equipment to avoid. Also is there any foods or anything else that should also be avoided.

Thanks!

 None of them are what I would call friends

SO...
I Have a total of 6 gliders now. All rescues. Got a pair then 1 then another then another pair.. I have successfully gotten the 2 single gliders together as a pair pretty easily, male and female, only a few months apart in age. So I have been trying for about 5 months now to get them all into one single colony because we built a huge, walk in cage into my house for them all to be in. THIS IS NOT WORKING OUT. I have 2 cages inside the walk in cage and I rotate who's running in the big enclosure and who's in witch cage BUT... They all seem to hate each other. The oldest pair are 5ish (Punkin and Henry), they seem to be VICIOUS twords all of the others, will attack thru the cage bars weather they are in the cage or on it, they will chase the others down even in unfamiliar territory and start a fight to the point that I have to physically seperate them from balling up... now, I have discovered that if I only put the male (Henry) with the others it goes way smoother but if I only put the female in she attacks so that tells me that SHE is the aggressor...
Now if I put the other pair in (2 years old Finnley and allium), it's usually the male (Finnley) that is the aggressor, but they both will be ok if everyone is sleeping..... once they are awake the fight is on..
The youngest pair (1 & 1/12 Dillon and Flutter) are the only ones that actually want to play with everyone. Poor Dillon has a chunk of fur missing from his head because he was asleep in the banana pouch and punkin (Henrys wife) reached thru the cage and grabbed him up and tried to rip him thru the cage bars. Im Glad I was there because I'm afraid she would have killed him that day. I have thought about separating one pair at a time and seeing if they will just miss each other so bad that they'll be willing to deal with the others out of sheer loneliness.... anyone tried this and have you had any luck if so..?

 dried fruit..... what's on it?

Posted by: Stuckinmotherhood
-----
So I buy the dried fruits from various well known and trusted online vendors. It is expensive and I still have to buy all of this fresh fruit all the time to feed my 6 fuzzbutts, so I decided to buy a dehydrator and "save" the soon to be bad fruits and veggies, thinking that I might be able to save myself some money..
Well, this has HAS NOT worked out in my favor at all. My babes wont TOUCH any of it. Sniff it and turn thier little noses up at it.
So I am sitting here studying the visual differences in "THIERS" and "MINE" and I am seeing this sugary coating of some sort on the outside of them. I also am noticing that theirs are a different texture , more of a GUMMY BEAR feel then dried fruit... so now I am 2ondering if I just really suck at dehydrating food or if what I am buying is modified in some way..
I also thi k this about YOGURT DROPS.. I am pretty sure they are flavored vanilla chips because I have tried every recipe I can find and mine still AREN'T shaped like a chocolate chip AT ALL...

 Bonding- Next steps?

Posted by: Dedeandlolo
-----
I got my girls on Saturday, and things are going very well. They let me pet them in the bonding pouch, and are comfortable with me during tent time, and will even fly onto my face, haha!

What are my next steps regarding bonding? Do I start to teach them to come to me before I move to the bathroom (out of the tent)? I will keep doing what I am doing currently, but I just want to know for future reference, what to progress to and when.

 HELP ! My joey sugar glider acting weird !

Posted by: Jolly2104
-----
I just adopt a new male sugar glider. Hes a joey. 1,5 month old. So so young and small. Hes been acting strange. I put him in his pouch and cage alone because my female sg jolly bite him once. He thought that jolly is his mother and try to climb on her and she doesnt like it. Jollys usually very kind but she really hates it when he does that. I dont want to take any risk so i never put them together if im not around. So the problem is my joey sugar glider eats alot that it looks like its not normal. He chew it like crazy. Fast. And he just wont stop. He have a small boddy but hea tummy kind of big. When i put him on the cage he search for food. He even bites the tissue that i put in the cage. He eats sg baby food and tomatos and melon yet he act like i never give him food... i even fet him 3 times a day. And weirdly sometimes hes poop are watery and sometimes normal..... is he stressed ? It havent been 1 week since i adopt him. Is he still adapting or something? And btw hes poop and pee smells bad. But people tells me that male sg does have smelly poop and pee. Your opinion will be so much appreciated. Thank you

 HELP ! Combining my fem suggie with male joey suggie

Posted by: Jolly2104
-----
So i just adopt a male sugar glider. And surprisingly when it reach me and i open the pouch i was really really small. The seller said it was 1,5 month old. The condition of the suggie is not that good either. His fur was kind of dirty and stiky and there was like some loose fur. But hes food appetite are high and he can drink on his own so in not so concern.

So i have an older sugar glider. Jolly around 7 month old. Shes usually a very kind suggie and like her name shes always so happy and excited. But sometimes shes to exited that its scares me to combine jolly and the new joey. Cause their size differences are quite a lot.

At first night I didnt combine them. But at the second night jolly was so insisting to go to my joey cage and to his pouch. So i let her in and she snuggle with him. Sometimes i hear hissing sound. And when I checked it was jolly being annoyed by the new suggie because it was always licking jolly face. And when their both awake i cant let them be together because the joey alyways want to climb jollys back and jolly always hiss and sometime like playfully attack him.

My concern this mornig was the new suggie have like a dry scar near his nose. Not a big one its small but still a scar. But last night they sleep just fine ? Is it by accident? Because i never cut jollys nails. Is he going to be okay ? And about the fur. Some of his fur are sticking out . Thats okay right ? And hes genital seems to be out most of the time. Thats common for male suggies right ? And do you think I should still combine them when their in the pouch ? Thank youu

PLEASE HELP I NEED INFORMATION

 Tents and Tips and Traits (please read!)

Posted by: Suggie_bears
-----
Hello! Recently my family has been thinking of adopting a pair of sugar gliders, I have been the main researcher, and Id just like to ask a few questions Ive never been able to find.

First off: is Ive seen lots of bonding tents and I know thats an important thing for bonding with a sugar glider, my question is are you supposed to get a special tent, or can you just use a regular camping tent?

Secondly I was wondering if there is a particular difference between different breeds of sugar gliders, personality wise. I know all gliders have a unique personalities but for example are leutistics usually more mellow than black beauties? Are classics easier to bond with than caramels? Things like that.

Last of all if there are any tips when looking for a glider, (and we are planning only to rescue or help regime gliders, no breeders)
For example any good rescues that can ship? Or Are in Oregon? We are probably going to be unable to travel very far, and so far we dont know that there are rescues in our location.
Thank you!
