Normally diseases do not cross species lines, however, we suggest you take normal precautions when you are sick around these small animals just to be on the safe side.

Cross-species illnesses are called zoonoses. They are rare, and the farther away the animal is genetcially from you, the less likely you will spread disease between one another. Since sugar gliders are marsupials, it is even less likely to spread disease with them than it is between your dog or cat. Take that information as you will, but zoonoses *do* exsist, such as the bird flu.

Is this pronounced 'zoo'(as in a place with animals)-

And 'nose' (as in plain on your face)+ pluralism??


Never heard of it but sounds cool!
