Brought home my first sugar gliders

 Brought home my first sugar gliders

Tonight was my first night with my new male and female sugargliders. I purchased the pair from Phil in Ponder, Texas for $300. They are both about 22 weeks birthed and from different families. The male is calm and can be held easily whereas the female is very excitable and just wants to run away. She jumped many times from my hand and shoulder against the wall trying to climb as high as she could. I finally put her on my ceiling fan and she was content to just sit there grooming herself. Obviously she wanted to be at the highest point possible to get a good look and feel as to what was going on. Right away I noticed the male mounting the female which was strange as I was told that it takes a year before they are sexually mature. They would not eat anything that I offered them so I assumed that they were nervous or had already been fed. I finally got the two to eat fresh pieces of apple. The male was content just sitting in his cage all night eating apple, whereas the female would instantly fly out of the cage door and go exploring.
