03/23/17 05:03 PM Jubilee's new mom - just saying hi!

I just adopted my first glider. He's a two year old male saved from a less-than ideal situation. I've been reading everything I can. He was very underweight when I got him. Tested for parasites but thankfully clean. Just depressed, lonely and being fed a poor diet. I switched him to TPG and he's gained six grams already. After his neutering next week and as soon as he's clear, he'll be getting a new girlfriend. I'm experienced with exotics. I have an 18 year old saltwater reef, I breed bearded dragons and used to own a cockatoo and Amazon parrot. I'm looking forward to learning from the experts on these little guys.

03/21/17 12:03 PM Soon to be Sugar Daddy!

Sugar Glider that is...

Hi, my name is Ryan. I will be getting my fuzzbutts in a couple of weeks and can hardly wait. I've been researching for a couple of months on diets, behaviors, toys, etc. I know I have more to learn, but I'm pretty sure that I have the necessities down. I will be getting two creaminos (male and female), whom I lovingly named Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm. I just can't wait to get them home to start the bonding process.

I've been following the forums for a while and find most of the info extremely valuable and informative. I guess you can call me a lurker, until now. I'll probably still lurk though... smile

About me:
I am a fact checker, and that drives my fiance nuts. I am also a dog person but had to put my bud down 7 years ago and just couldn't get anything else to take his place. Until now! I am a pretty out going person for the most part, easy to get along with. I have the patience of a rock. I can take a lot before I break. Just a quick introduction basically. I look forward to taking part of the glider festivities!

03/18/17 11:44 AM New suggie dad

Hi everyone!! My name is Alan, and tonight I'll be possibly the new dad of 2 female joeys!! I have a smallish cage (only about 15 inches instead of 24 across) for the next few days while the HQ comes in from Amazon. I know it's tiny, but it's high and I figure might be a good cage if I have to visit my parents with them or separate them for health or something. The new one is large and should be here soon.

I got a wheel from Petsmart. I was seeing plastic wheels on here, and normally the 12 inch size. I just read a post, however, where it said a mesh wire wheel was better for them to hang on to? I have a hedgehog as well, and I tend to lean away from wire mesh wheels because of the toenails getting caught. Do I want the 12 inch size and a mesh one instead?

Right now I have a branch for them to climb on, clip on feeder bowls, water bottles, a hammock and sleep set from the breeder, their food mixing (which I will look into changing depending on what it is) and a vet appointment set up for Tuesday. I only say maybe I'll have them as I want to see how healthy they are and such, it's a lot of money and I want to make sure I'm investing properly.

Do you think I need anything else? Also toys I have a hanging plastic piece, some fleece pieces and a hanging rope loop, which I will watch for fraying. I'm just thinking of the wheel if it isn't right I would rather get the right one.

Sorry this is so long, I'm new with a TON of questions but I've been creeping here for a few weeks to see how everything goes and what to get.

03/16/17 06:12 AM new guy intro

Hi all,
figured it was time to post and say hello(was trying to get pics of my guys 1st but its harder than I thought)
I have had my 2 brothers since the last weekend of February.
these 2 could not be more different, one is scared to leave the pouch once outside of the cage(except for a treat) , the other wants to see how many times he can jump on my head before play time is over. I will do tent time earlier tonight so maybe I can get pictures while they are groggy
