So I was just looking around on a website that does national classified listing, most of us know about this website and use it. But I don't think I can list it on here. Anyway, I saw an ad for "Sugar Bear for sale" So I was like.. huh what's that so I clicked it and its a sugar glider. Seems like they bought the glider from the expo in Jan at our fair grounds here in MD. And the people selling them are now calling them Sugar Bears. So.. I went to a good ol search engine and typed in "Sugar Bear" and sure enough websites with gliders came up.

WHY in the heck are people now calling them Sugar Bears??? I'm a little upset cause now there is a new name for new owners to get confused.. or god forbid someone buys a "Sugar Bear" and trys to search for care online but they can't find the good info if they would have searched the correct name of "Sugar Glider" *sigh* Sorry I'm venting.

Has anyone else heard about this or how it got started!?

Thanks,
Erin

(PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets will tell you they are sugar bears. I believe when they stand on their hind legs to ward off animals they look like little bears.

please correct me if I am wrong.

They're calling them sugar bears because when they sell their sugar GLIDERS they tell people not to research them online because we are all "self appointed internet experts" and that the only GOOD information is THEIR information. So, by typing in sugar bears, you go to THEIR website and their fake wikopedia articles, etc. THey're liars. They don't WANT anyone to find the proper information because then they won't buy their disgusting pelleted food and their tiny cages and their sick gliders....

I absolutely agree. Isn't there a way to link the phrase "Sugar Bear" to our website here? The only two websites that come up glider related are run by (PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets. tant I can't believe those people. tant

We have added tags and such here for sugar bears so when search engines index us, we should also be getting indexed for sugar bears wink

I googled "Sugar Bear" and GC didn't come up until the 7th page...is there anyway to get it to be on the first page?

Around the holidays they where at the mall by me and I was talking to the guy because I wanted one and I asked him the differnce between a sugar bear and a sugar glider and his remark was " people don't want to hear glider because it didn't sound cute and because he thought people would think it was from the rat family" he had 2 there with him and let them jump around to people there.

Yeah I just had my cousin in NY (Long Island) find me in facebook and we were catching up and started talking gliders..she told me up there, they are called sugar bears...so I had to go on a rant lol and explain everything to her lol...

I think adding sugar bears to any and all websites we have is a great idea!

I strongly suggest that you don't! It's to much of a risk in trusting that the dog(s) will not try and harm them.

Yes, that whole line that (PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets gives about cats and dogs not wanting to go after gliders because they don't have a "rodent" smell is completely untrue.

Suggiemom is 100% right..I got my first glider from them and that is exactly why they call them sugar bears, I was really lucky to have found this website and I am not so sure I would have if I didnt search "glider."

This is not the first thread about this issue- all we REALLY need to do is have the GOOD glider info sites and forums add "sugar bear" as a tag so that the GOOD sites come up when you search for that instead of just "sugar glider"

also, don't abbreviate (PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets

you need to have it spelled out.

Perfect Pocket Pets spelled out as often as possible so it'll bring us up when people goggle them.....they don't shorten it to (PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets

if you search sugar bears on google if you look at the side it says that you are using the wrong name and tells you to use sugar glider that is pretty cool at least they are kinda of helping

When we started doing the articles, I thought about trying to get someone to write one up an article about the differences. It cannot be anything negative but it can use the name of mill breeders and sites that are using this name to divert the unknowing to them so when googled those cannot see the negative.

This is something I know would be indexed a bunch and help move up the google and other search engine ratings.

SunCoast was able to put one of their articles on the first page of google when you search "Sugar Bear" so hopefully this will help people who are looking for the right information.

Well, nevermind, maybe I'm going crazy but there just was an article on the first page of google and now I can't find it. The article explained what the term "sugar bear" really was.

Hmmmmm...

I found it, it;s on the first page of Yahoo when you search...whew!

I know he is a mill breeder. To bad I did not keep the info he gave me when I got my first glider. When I found GC I threw all his info away.
