Animal-World Information about: Sugar Glider

   Sugar Gliders get their name from their "sweet tooth" and because they have a fold of furred skin stretching from their forefeet to their hind feet which they spread out like a kite to help them glide through the trees searching for insects and nectar!

My name is Wendy Brennan and I just visited this site and read the commets as I am getting 2 suger gliders and would like the information about what to do. I have been doing research about them. I have volunteered at a wildlife park and have some knowledge about that. Thank you.

I'm about to be 16 in the next few days. and my mom bought 2 sugar gliders. I have been wanting one for over a year now. One is pregnant. So therefore my sugar glider is in her tummy, :D. See now I saw what that lady wrote, and really no. I don't like how she thinks we will get lazy. Now maybe thats what will happen with your kids or even YOU but I'm sorry to break it to you, I have 4 other brothers and sisters who also take turns taking care of our precious animals. Even my mom. So you should really chill because not all teens are lazy and careless... you don't know us.

Relax lady. I think it's a little harsh to say this is disturbing that kids have them. I'm sure the parents are around, hence the fact they are 150 dollars.

Hey, I am 13 and I just got 2 sugar gliders. They are Sam and Frotto. I learned a lot from the web so I am thanking you guys for helping people. Because if not, I might not have learned to take care of them the right way!!:-)

For the most part I thought it was pretty good, however I do have one statement, sugar gliders can't be leashed. They risk injuring themselves. The reason they can injure themselves is the tissue on their side is very delicate and can be cut by the leash.

My friend has a few sugar gliders as pets, but recently one of the male gliders has a wound in his neck. And the weird thing is that it had happenend before, but that male has healed just fine.
I'm a bit worried about that little guy so I was wondering what I could do for my friend and his glider.

The surrounding area of the wound is bald and in a perfect circle. The wound itself isn't really big. And there is nothing in the cage that could make that wound I believe.

It sucks, Pennsylvania doesn't allow any sugar gliders hope. I'll move again soon.
