I will be traveling to California next week and since we are driving there from Texas, I planned on taking my gliders with me, as I always do on extended out-of-town trips. However, I just found out today that sugar gliders are illegal in Cali, which of course puts a big kink in my plans.

Any suggestions?

I suggest finding a friend or a neighbor that can come over and feed your gliders for you while you are out of town.

Every year my family takes a cruise and we always hire a pet sitter to come over twice a day, once to remove food dishes in the morning from the cages and once in the evening (before the sun goes down) to feed them. She sends us an email every visit to let us know she was here and what she did and how everyone is doing. She does not take the gliders out of the cage.

I would not risk taking them to CA with you as I have known several folks that have had them confiscated from them there once someone knew they had them.

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

I have a baby sitter that comes in on Mondays and Thursdays when I work and feeds everyone for me.

I have the dishes prepared and labeled ahead for him, works well.

I know this is an old thread, but I feel it's wise you do not bring them.

I am a breeder who lives in Lake Havasu City, AZ, about 40 miles east of Needles, CA. In order for me to get the gliders up to the airport for shipping in Vegas, I must travel a stretch of Highway in California.

Part of that travel a stop point on Highway 40 in Needles that is State run. They are mostly there to check for illegal immigrants and produce coming into the state.

I normally am waived through once I tell them I was coming from Lake Havasu, but there was a time last summer I was almost stopped.

It was a new worker. He saw the crates in my car and asked what they were. I told him. He started getting upset asking me if I knew that they were illegal. I told him "Yes."

I explained to him I was traveling to McCarren Airport. I showed him not only my USDA license, (which I always carrying when traveling through California),my hotel confirmation paperwork in Henderson near the airport, and my flight print outs for each of the crates the following day at the airport.

He was still not sure. He was worried I was going to be leaving some in California. His supervisor came over and I explained to him the same thing. Once he saw all my travel paperwork, he was ok with it. He explained to the new employee that the way I was traveling to Vegas, was the best way from where I lived and it was good. Imagine what would have happened if the supervisor was not around.

My next step would have been to call my USDA inspector to let them speak to him, but thankfully, we didn't have to do that.
