Hey peeps, I saw a small little joey at a pet store ALONE, NO MOM, NO FRIENDS. I want to rescue it from the pet store by getting it and raising it. Need info on how to tell the age, and when I know it's age, I know what to feed it. HELP GUYS PLEASE! Thanks in advance!

Did you ask the people at the pet store how old the joey is? I would also ask where the parents are.

Is the joey's tail fully furred out and fluffy? Ask them what they are feeding the joey? Male or female? How long have they had the joey in the store? Can you get a photo to post here?

I'm going to a mall to get a larger cage for my suggies now. After I'll ask the pet store for info. From what I remember the joey looks like a miniature sugar glider but the body seems to not have that much fur. I'll get a picture on my phone and export it onto my laptop to post here. Thanks! (Should I get the joey first?)

Great news, we were able to get it. Gender unknown for now and letting it settle in. On a weekend I'll start bonding. When my home's WiFi is fixed, I'll post some Questions with answers and a picture.

Thanks!

Awesome!! It's a good idea to let them get used to their surroundings, new sights and smells.

Can't wait to see pics!

Got good news and slightly bad news. The bad news is that I have absolutely no idea on how to transfer my phone's pictures to my laptop. Good news is that my home's WiFi is fixed and I should be able to post the 'Q and A' here later today. Thanks for sticking around guys!

If you have email on your phone, send pics to yourself and open on laptop. You will need an internet storage like photo bucket or dropbox in order to share pics.

I don't have Photo Bucket or Dropbox, but I'll still try to upload a picture of the joey here. Most likely going to be a crabbing picture. XD

Also I need some tips on how to bond with this little joey... it crabs A TON. I'm also scared of it's bite hurting me. A lot of people say that glider bites don't hurt that much and it's kinda true, but Luna's bite hurts quite a bit so I'm a little scared to interact with the joey. I once put it in a SAMLA from ikea and it crabbed quite a few times then fell asleep in a corner. I covered it with a glove I 'scented' and tried to pet it. It kinda worked. It then woke up and slept in another corner on top of another glove. Again, I used the other glove to cover it and tried to pet it. It woke up a few minutes later and started crabbing so I put it in it's pouch and hung the pouch back it it's cage... I'm now unsure of what to do. Tips?

bonding will be a slow process. Spending time with him will help. You can talk, or read to him. Or sing songs, like slow soft songs. I still sing baby lullabies to mine. Will he take food or treats from you hand yet?

I dont know if this worked but I have been lucky with bonding. I use the glider scent at Suncoast. I spray a bit on my hand before placing in the pouch. I will say that if you bend your finger and are bitten, it hurts less-from experience! smile

Haven't tried that yet. I'll try to give Starlight a few fruit drops from my hands.

I never tried the spray but have heard of several people who had success with it.

Buttercup was /is the crabbiest of my trio she is also the youngest, so maybe it a youngling thing. She is always more crab than bite. We just kept her in a bonding pouch a lot in the beginning and sented up her cage with our worn t-shirts. We got lucky with her it didn't take too long for her to start liking/accepting us.

But yes some of their bites do hurt quite a bit and I was fearful as well for a while. As time passed I realized that most of the bites are just uncomfortable and not real painful. That helped me get over that fear. I guess you just have to get nipped enough to overcome it.

Try placing your fist inside the bonding pouch and just hang out with him while watching tv or something. It will help expose him to your scent while getting use to being around hands. If he does bite, I agree that with bent fingers it hurts less.

Sing, talk sweet, keep introducing your scent, give treats and I'd say most importantly be patient. Patience is the key, you're a big ole giant to him and he has to learn you mean no harm. Keep it up and good luck!

The spray did nothing for mine... I think they actually liked the taste o.0 Mine are weird like that, though.

For the next month or so I'll be focusing on taming little Starlight. I'll still post some updates here and there, but I probably won't be on GliderCENTRAL often. Thanks for all the help you guys gave me. smile

Ok got another teeny tiny update. Starlight seems to be a little more excited when I come to her cage to give her yoggies. Also I experienced a joey bite... Because she thought my fingers are the yoggies... XD

This will probably happened a lot, mine her confused after a few treats since my fingers smell like it (& are also pasty white, lol).

Stewie still thinks my fingers are big pine nuts. He's not a big fan of yogies yet.
