Hi we’re new owners to. We’re rescuing a pair of females from Wisconsin Sugar Glider Rescue. We got a nice 21*23*31” HQ flight cage, talked to Matt for the Ec leaves. (Side note Matt’s doing good, he’s 30 miles away from the wildfires) We researched the diet and got a great recipe. We’re ordering the mineral and sups from Amazon and the Glider Wheel too. So I think we’ll be ready when we get them next week

10/09/17 08:52 PM Second Thoughts

Hi everyone! I'm going to be an official sugar glider owner of two in a week, but I'm suddenly having second thoughts about it. frown

I have done all the necessary research about caring for them and have the supplies and equipment ready for them. But now I'm just worried that I won't be able to take care of them as well as I thought I could.

The thing is, I'm a high school student who is going to graduate next year, and I am afraid I won't have the time to care for them than I had originally thought.

I am totally fine with having to constantly care for them by taking the time to make their meals, clean their cages, play with them, and have them chatter in the night (I'm a deep sleeper and I don't mind noise). I also don't do many extracurricular activities so I go home straight away.

But I worry that I cannot find the time to bond with them with days I have a busy schedule. Also, I'm at school from 8:40AM to 3:00PM and I wonder if that time period is too long to be away from them. I also know that when I go to university, I might be away for longer periods of time from them. (The universities I plan to go to all allow exotic pets)

I am mainly worried for their health and bonding them with me. So should I still get them or not? (Though I really want them and I understand the responsibility with having sugar gliders, I am okay with not getting them if it is for the best)

Hi! I recently retired and then bought a sweet little 14 week old male glider, Gizmo, 5 weeks ago. So far he has survived my inexperienced parenting attempts. As a new owner, I have lots of questions and concerns. There is a lot of conflicting info on the internet - so trying to use common sense while weeding through it all.

In the bonding and relations section, I just posted some of my questions and concerns on traveling while in the early bonding period and what to do about a mate since he is not neutered. Please feel free to share your wisdom and experience with me. Thanks!

Hi everyone! My boyfriend and I just adopted a single sugar glider from friends of ours, he had a cage mate with the previous owners but they unfortunately lost him outside.
He seems to be getting used to us (biting less, letting us pick him up, etc)
but I would love to know any tips/tricks you guys have! Especially regarding cage furnishings and bonding as he only came with a food dish, water bottle and heat rock.

Thank you! <3

08/31/17 11:21 PM Help! I don't know where my babies came from!

November of last year I rescued 4 gliders that were said to have been abandoned. The girl I got them from, got them from a girl who needed a foster home for them, and she says she got them from a guy, but doesn't remember his name. Neither girl is helpful with any information about the gliders. I have so many questions about their history, their previous health status, previous diets, just millions of questions.
They're doing great now, BUT there are babies now...
I was told that these gliders were fixed. But they're not. There's 2 boys and 2 girls. I know who the Mommy and Daddy are, but not having their history is really starting to bother me! I'm sure there was record of them at birth, correct? Because you have to document them to follow the lineage to ensure there is no mating between relatives?
I've done plenty of research on Sugar Gliders, but I know nothing of the development of the joeys.

I've re-written this post a million times. It's difficult to word all of the drama that came before them, and I felt like I was rambling.
Is there any way to find out who my babies are?! Where they came from?! Then I'd know how old they were, and if they were related.
I live in Illinois. I picked them up in Bartlet maybe. They were fostered through an Elgin FB page, and previously lived in that area Elgin, Hoffman Estates, Schaumburg.

Idk where else to turn.
Thanks for reading.

Ok, so me and my wife have decided that it's time to get a glider. A friend has two and I liked them my wife think they are too cute. We have been together 7 years and we feel like we are ready. I have been doing research for like 4 months in my spare time. We have an opportunity to get a pair of girls that are about 18 months. We have what we would need for them mostly. Waiting for some stuff in the mail. My only concern is bonding. My research says Joey's bond better but I have a big heart and wanna give the 2 girls a good home.
