Did you know that one of the most eaten things by sugar gliders is the silver wattle gum tree?

Not only do they scrape the tree bark to get to the sap that it holds inside, it also attracts bugs in the spring and fall when the flowers are blooming and they not only eat the bugs, but also the flowers.

Well, guess what my gliders are all getting in their cages tonight? Yep, Silver Wattle branches!
