Jen, Alkina is just a little over a year old. Well, that's my best guess anyway. I was one of the Custom Cage Works people and was told that they were 8-12 weeks OOP, but when I took them to the vet 3 days after getting them, Alkina weighed only 35 grams and her cagemate Nara weighed only 29 grams. frown But I got them 1 year ago tomorrow! cloud9

And she did only make that sound that one night. Haven't heard it out of Nara yet. Oh, and

Thanks for the reassurance though that she's okay. It just really scared me because she is not the vocal one at all.

Of the 6 females I have, 4 do that every single month to a greater or lesser degree. smile Myst was first, and the rest actually learned it from her, lol. 1 year or so isn't too old for it to start (and it's my less vocal ones that tend to do that, too). The only time I'd be concerned and recommend a vet check is if it lasted longer than 48 hours-but you'll probably hear it again in about 28 to 30 days! crazy

Some mature early. I had 2 joeys neutered at 9 weeks and 11 weeks-believe me, they were fully dropped with bald spots coming in. crazy Each one is definitely unique!

My glider just does a very soft hissing... It is loud enough to hear when the TV is on but still faint. I have only heard her do it twice and when I went to the cage she climbed right on me (usually she runs around the cage before jumping to me) I was just wondering what it ment. Thanks Yall!

Sometimes Kia will do it when Zion( my cat )sneaks onto my room and Kia will do this when Zion comes too close to her cage.

Oh my goodness, my Luna has begun making that sound (minus the bark). She drove me nuts last night checking on her thinking she was in distress. Everytime I looked in on her, she was just grumble-fussing to herself as she scampered around the cage. EEKK! Is my baby (5, almost 6, months OOP) a big girl now?

That particular sound can start at anywhere between 4 and 9 months in a female, and not all girls will make it.

Congrats!-your little one is in heat.


Ooooops!! - then I better not play that sound for my Sugar Gliders any more - for it really got the males attention - roflmao roflmao roflmao

Wait a second, that's what that sound means? It means my glider girl is in heat? She's only 11 wks old though. I've had them since 6 wks. My gliders will make that sound but minus the barking. What does that mean?

thats funny that is the sound my female makes just before she starts crabbing her head off and chasing my male around the cage. I thought it was always a leave me alone sound especially since she chases him away but maybe not. Although the thought of it is almost sad (ie: come her honey...get away from me what do you think your doing.) this has got to be what my ariel is doing.

nome..they do hiss at each other, too. The hiss/bark a male may make is different, not nearly as intense, and doesn't go for hours. Hissing alone (as long as it's not when they're peeing-that could indicate a UTI, or pooping which could mean constipation), is simply communication. It means "Hi. I'm over here. Come talk to me, look what I'm doing!" sort of. When a glider is really trying to get another's attention, or flirting, it may also be followed by clacking, or chattering teeth-you can hardly see their mouth move unless you look closely when they chatter, but it's very cute (and very fast). If a glider hiss/chatters at YOU-you should feel extremely flattered-it's normally reserved for other gliders, and what's more, gliders that are liked. smile Hope this helps

silverwolf...lol. I have one that does that. The ultimate 'playing hard to get' I guess. Poor guys. roflmao

I wondered what that noise was!! I never heard it before, then when we brought Flower home, I heard it. I have two girls though. Why would Sparkles make that noise all of a sudden now that Flower is there? I always thought they were squabbling or fighting, but I wasn't sure!

Oh and Nome63, now we know what this noise means!! Lol

It's one glider calling to the another..normally a mate, but if a guy isn't around...well, she'll do. She can't help, and likely will learn it and also do that when her heat comes (several of mine started that way), but she's someone to 'talk' to.

Haha, wow, I was just about to post asking what that sound was! My little girl just made that noise a couple of times-- I think she knows Kadabra is here, even though they're in separate rooms.

Good recording, my little one has never made that sound before. She makes the hissing sounds when shes cleaning herself,(someone told me its because shes blowing air/spitting on herself to clean herself?) and she barks when she wants me to come into the room.
