#1403931 - 09/01/16 10:55 PM HELP!!!

I just submitted a concern about my first time sugar glider mom and forgot to attach my email for a response.

#1403932 - 09/01/16 10:58 PM HELP!!!

My first time suggie mom has given birth. I only noticed when I took her out of the cage and heard something fall to the floor. I thought it was poop but it was a pink embryo like baby moving around and kicking still even after the fall.

I quickly scooped it up and brought it against her stomach. I've read that they're the size of a grain of rice when first born but I can't say it was quite that small.

I'm so scared for it's life. I struggled about 15 min to help it inside her pouch but I have no clue if it will survive, if it will latch on, or if it was ever latched on to begin with.

Sadly, it's sibling didn't make it. We found a pinky baby in the cage pouch tiny tiny and hard dry.

I need to know if there is hope for this baby. If it's possible it hasn't latched on for the first time yet. I need to mentally prepare myself. What can happen?

So sorry for the loss of one of the joeys and hoping the second one makes it to the pouch to attach.

As Feather mentioned, please take a few moments to register so you may update us once this thread is moved to the appropriate forum as well as being able to post throughout the board.

I will now move this thread to our Breeding & Babies forum. Hope to see you on the board as a registered member.

Sadly, I had this happen once. Considering the distance the embryo fell to the floor, that's a seriously long hard fall. It's highly unlikely that it would survive after sustaining a fall like that. In my case, the joey did not survive. Hoping you have had a better result with yours.

Don't sacrifice quality information for convenient information.
