I adopted Sassy and Sally almost two years ago. Yesterday I was watching them in their cage when I saw Sassy has a wart/skin tag this on her lower abdominal area. I Googled it and I see nothing about sugar gliders getting warts or skin tags! I did notice that the pictures do look a lot like the mature males! She is acting completely normal. Could it be possible for my girl to be a boy?? She doesn't have the bald spots.

I am very confused!

Without a photo it's hard to say for sure, but it sounds like Sassy may be a Sam. grin He may have had a "pom on" neuter where the testicles are removed but the pom is left.

It's very possible that it could be a neutered male with a 'pom on'. That is where they remove the testes and leave the scrotum. It would resemble a deflated balloon.

Maybe this photo will help you out:

It isn't furry, though. It looks exactly like a skin tag.

If it looks like a skin tag, it may be your female has part of her pouch inverted which is common when they are cleaning the pouch. If it is a soft pink it should fix itself, if it looks red or inflamed/irritated, you need to take her in and have a pouch swab done to rule out a pouch infection.

If you want to know what a person is like, watch how he treats others.

You'll never know what the outcome is if you don't step up and try.

When I got Zoey I was told she was a boy, I happened to be grooming her, looked at her belly and there was a pouch! i was pretty surprised to say the least. She had bald spots, but I think they were from stress/over grooming. You should probably consult a vet like Srlb and GliderNursery suggested. wink

It is very possible that what is sticking out is one of her teats. That would look exactly like a skin tag. But as Peggy said, if its red, inflamed, or has an odor, then a vet visit is needed. wink

Thank you all so much for replying! It actually does look like the inverted pouch. It is not red or inflamed so I'm not too concerned. If it changes at all I will be taking her to the vet! =)
