When I purchased my gliders the lady told us that she trained her gliders to be awake during the day time & sleep at night. Has anyone here done that & if so how? Thanks

I think she lied to you. You cannot make a nocturnal animal diurnal.

You can wake them up and make them interact with you, but they are not going to want to stay awake for long periods of time.

Sugar gliders in general sleep about 20 hours in a 24 hour period. The other 4 hours they are not up continuously, but up and down with naps in between.

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.

Which is why I could never be a salesman - I just can't lie about things like that. They are still adorable, and I'm happy with them. Thanks for the answer! I appreciate it!

Really? Wow, then I think I have four insomniacs. (Maybe they get that from their slave.) Mine seem to be active for a cumulative 5-6 hours over a 9-10 hour period most days. I say cumulative because, like you said, they're up & down in 1-2 hour blocks. It also seems to vary depending on how much I'm around.

It might be that the four are just so staggered that it seems that way. I'll have to pay more attention now. Arthur (my laziest) I'd say is closer to 4 cumulative hours, but he is the last to rise, first to retire, & takes the longest naps... & could stand to loose a few grams. Correlation? Hmmm...
