I have just entered the world of sugar gliders in the last couple of months and brought home baby Zen who was 10 weeks out of pouch when I got him on April 18th of this year. I know that gliders should never be left solo, so I started looking for a companion for little Zen. Now little Loki has come into the picture. I currently have them in separate cages right next to each other so they can hang out at night when they come out. They are far enough away that they cannot grab each other but they can still interact. Loki is a neutered male who is 12 weeks out of pouch. Zen is still intact. I'm looking for advice on the best way to introduce them to each other. I wasn't sure if because they are so close in age it will be easier? Or if this will not matter at all...I don't want anyone getting hurt, but I also don't want them to have to be alone for much longer either. Zen is pretty outgoing and nothing seems to faze him in the slightest. Loki crabbs at absolutely everything and seems to hate everything at least for the moment. Am I better off waiting until Loki settles in more? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, and Welcome to Glider Central...

How long have you had Loki?

He should be given a chance to settle in before intro's.

I would even consider a 30 day quarantine followed by a vet check before intro's.

As long as they are close to same age and size, they should be fine.

Here is something you may want to read to help with this process.

We hope to hear about your progress and if you have anymore questions, please ask. smile

Thank you so much for getting back to me! I have had Loki for a few days now and he has a vet appointment on the the 9th to get checked. Thankfully Loki doesn't seem as angry today, so I'm hoping we are heading in the right direction! I read about swapping the bonding pouches, but what about also swapping things like hammocks and other toys as well? Also, today I have them both in their own bonding pouches and have been carrying them around together. Will this help?

Yes, this will help. Their scents will mingle while they sleep. I would take advantage of them being separated in order for you to become bonded individually, and once they're together, they will already have some trust in you and that will really give you alot of gain on the trust and bonding journey.

Please keep us posted on how it's going and would like to hear about your well check too.
