I have two male gliders about one year old. They are brothers and have been together since birth. I got them from someone who couldnt care for them properly. I give them all the best food and toys and a big cage. I play with them as much as possible but lately it hasnt been enough. They are kind to me and dont bite but will only stay on me for a few seconds then try to escape my room (which has happened recently). One has gotten out twice and i think the first time he was out all night long. I also think since getting out into a very large space this has been their only goal. Is there anything i can do to help curve this?? Im in desperate need, i hate keeping them locked up.

We live in Cheltenham (in the west of England) and for four months we have been the proud owners of a Meyers Parrot named Cupcake. He was only five months old when we bought him and in the short time since then he has learned a great deal. He can imitate the telephone and the sound of the curtains being drawn and he cries pitifully when left alone. However, what particularly amuses us is his behaviour during our meal times. As soon as he sees the table being set he comes to the bars of his cage and chirps at us for food. He loves peas and baked beans and he is particularly fond of toast (which he dunks in his water pot before eating). So far he has not said an intelligible word - but he chats away happily in his own robotic language and clicks his tongue as a greeting each time we come into the room. He enjoys riding around on my shoulder but, when thwarted, he can really bite!

I have a pet raccoon named baby. She was stranded by her momma last year. We waited two days for her mom to come back but she never did. So I called several rehabbers and no one wanted to take a raccoon. One person even told me to have a vet put her down. No way to that! I love animals.  Baby is a joy to have. Very affectionate and playful. She just has a look of pure joy on her face when she plays. We have a chihuahua and they are best buddies. I never thought a raccoon could be such a joy but Baby is really fun. They do keep you on your toes, you have to watch them all the time because they are faster then a two year old and love getting into things. Always exploring everything they can get into. Wouldn't trade her for the world though :)

    I found a baby raccoon about 4 weeks old that I'm caring for. Can you tell me what did you for de-worming or any input you can share. Thanks Linda

I do have a 5 year old sun conure. She has laid eggs for the last 3 years. She doesn't have a partner. She is the only pet l have. 2 weeks ago she finished laying the eggs of this year and usually l leave it and she keeps sitting on for about a week or two and she's got no problems. This time was different, l woke up around 2 am with her banging on the cage. When l saw her in blood, because she was plucking her chest feathers. So far she was plucking her skin too, she was in blood and her eggs too. She got very weak. I was so scared to lose her. I don't know. Is it related with her eggs?  They are not fertilized and every year I just take them away and she gets frustrated? I went to the vet and they told me can be stress or sexual frustration because she lays eggs and nothing happens. What do you suggest me to do? Now she is fine but l don't want this to happen ever again.

    Sounds like she did get frustrated, and unfortunately there is no guarantee it won't happen again. Not sure what to tell you, there are substitute eggs you can put in the nest, but that doesn't seem to be the problem. Usually birds go through a kind of 'teenage' behavior thing with sexual maturity, and it passes over time, so maybe as she is maturing she will mellow out. Wishing you two the best...

Can sugar gliders live in a 3ft tall glass tank by 2 ft wide with a mesh top. It's kitted out with branches, parrot toys, nesting boxes and pouches ?

    From the 'environment' section above, you can see that the size of your glass tank should offer plenty of space, especially with all the decor you've provided for these active little critters. They do like attention as well as activity, so may want to come out of the cage to play as well.
  • Adam - 2014-07-29
    Absolutely no glass tanks!!! They need to climb on the sides and have full use of the space. Also it should be at least 3.5 feet tall and 30 inches square. Thats really as small as i would suggest. And horrizontal bars are best i have been told.

    Normally you can go to a pet shop and have them order you one. I wouldn't go to a change. Try a smaller store that just deals with fish.
