Glad to hear youve been doing your research.
First things first, the cage you have are the bars a 1/2 inch apart? Anything wider and your babies will escape! And is it large enough? These animals need alot of room to play!
I would also recommend getting two gliders from the same breeder
. That way you dont have to worry about intros and if they dont get along.... a extra cage. Typically (in most cases) breeders
will offer a set of joeys for a deal. So be sure to ask! Dont rush in finding a set of gliders, make sure you find someone who takes good care of them, whether its a breeder
Some things you will need before starting up.
Youll need to research a proper diet
. Many users here use the HPW or BML diet
, but if you click on the word diet
you will see a list of diets
to choose from. Scroll through and find one that fits you and the gliders.
You will need to find a exotic vet
in your area who knows Sugargliders, and having a backup for an emergency is ALWAYS recommended
There are alot of vendors
here that are more than willing to help you with a cage set that fits your cages needs. I usually only buy 2 pouches
, and a hammock for my cage. I fill the rest with toys
You will also need a sugarglider safe wheel. Many wheels
sold in petstores arnt safe and can brak or deglove there Tail. The Custom Cruiser, Stealth and Fast tracks are very popular, plus a few more out there.
If your unsure if any of your toys
are unsafe, I would post pictures in Housing and Accessories and ask for input. Sometimes small parts, and toys
with holes or thread can injure a glider.
I highly reccommend reading and asking as many questions as possible. We are here to help!
