#47863 - 06/01/05 04:30 PM Sugar Cane Treat?

I haven't heard anything about sugar cane treats for gliders. Anybody know if these are ok? Are they safe? Reason being, I was thinking this very well may satisfy Sassy's need to chew on things. I was just curious about splinters (if sugar cane even does that), etc. Any sagely advice out there in gliderland? Here's a link to a product I was considering: <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wave.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thanx.gif" alt="" />

I've heard it is ok to give to your gliders. I haven't done it though....would like to hear all the imput others may have

Gizmo Loves Sugar Cane. I bought that from Exotic Nutrition, but then found out that the brand KAYTEE makes it for a lot cheaper,and the same amount of pieces. Gizmo does shred off some pieces and puts it in his bed, but i havnt had any problems with splintering or anything. I only give it to him occasionally though. When I do though he goes nuts for it.

Yep my gliders get sugar cane also. All 5 of my gliders beg for more. I order mine at exotic nutrition.

one thing i was thinking about the splintering (and since it's not a "natural" food it may be an exception).. but you figure they shred wood to get the gum.. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nixweiss.gif" alt="" />

#47868 - 06/02/05 11:31 AM Re: Sugar Cane Treat? [Re: ]

I've found these at organic grocery stores too where they seem to be the cheapest. I cut mine in half and freeze them. Then clip one half to the cage as a treat. I wouldn't feed it everyday, but my guys go crazy for it.

#47869 - 06/02/05 04:25 PM Re: Sugar Cane Treat? [Re: ]

Thanks for the info. I'll check a local health food store and see if they have them. I'll give it whirl and see if the kids like 'em.

We have a sugar cane field near our house....maybe I should "collect" some. Fresh sugar cane is soft, green and shouldn't splinter, its more like celery...

The stuff you are getting must be dried?

#47871 - 06/02/05 08:35 PM Re: Sugar Cane Treat? [Re: ]

Yeah, I'd be out there "borrowing" some of that fresh stuff oh say.... about midnight! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif" alt="" /> The stuff I'm looking to get most certainly must be dried. Although, I could probably soak it in some water to rehydrate it. I'm not sure what that would do to the flavor/sugar. Like somebody already posted, they tear into bark to get sap, so they must be adapted to handle this as well. I must be a glider geek because now almost everything I look at or see I say to myself "Oh, that would be awesome for my buddies!" What's really a trip is when I'm out and about and talking to the gliders in the bonding pouch. Other people kinda tend to give you a wide berth and if you listen really closely you can hear mothers telling their children "Stay away from the nasty man who's talking to his disturbing necklace!" HA! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/roflmao.gif" alt="" />

#47872 - 06/03/05 10:54 AM Re: Sugar Cane Treat? [Re: ]

The sugar cane sticks I get are pretty moist.... not "dry" by any means. Just remember it's a treat... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
