Sugar Glider

Does anyone own a Sugar Gider? I am interested in getting one. Any info. would be appreciated. Do they tear stuff up or are they good pets to own? Also, do they smell? I wanted a Ferret, but they smell.

Thanks,
Mark

I've heard they're pretty mean. I had a friend with a couple of them but they always just stayed in their cage and did absolutely nothing excited. I think hers were rescues or something. Don't know anyone who raised one from birth, maybe that would change the outcome. Of course my facts are not from first hand ownership so hopefully others will chime in.

they are really sweet. Usually get EXTREMELY attached to one person. They will be happy in a pouch around your neck pretty much all day. They dont smell and they LOVE fruit!

I've had 4 in the past, 2 about 11 years ago, and 2 about 7 years ago. They are really cool pets, but they require a lot of attention for them to know you and like you. they can be mean, but it depends on their diet and how much or little time they spend with people. Also, you must get one when its a baby that way it considers you (the owner) its parent. To successfully bond with a sugarglider, you need to buy a warm pouch that they sell for them, I would usually tear off a piece of a t-shirt that i had worn and didnt want anymore, and put it in the pouch with it and then you must carry the pouch with you as much as possible (prefferable around your neck so that the pouch lays on your chest and the sugarglider can hear your heartbeat and recognize your scent). The more time you spend with it, the more calm and playful personality it will have. They are not "mean" by nature, they just get scared and attack in fear and self-defense. And you DO NOT want to be bit by an adult!!!! that is some pain right there! the kind that last for a couple of weeks. Your bound to be softly bit when its a baby, but its not too hard, and its just getting to recognize your taste.

also, a lot of people feed them meal worms ... which yes are good source of protein for them, but it tends to make them a little meaner, and carnivorous. I used to make my own blend of meat flavored gerber with chopped up fruits & veggies. keeps them healthy and sound.

but all in all, they are super cool pets if taken care of and raised properly!
... and they can walk on walls and jump (glide) for several feet ... how cool is that!!!!

oh and another thing for those of you that are looking to get one ... when you get their cage, they prefer narrow but tall cages with a lot of branches to jump from one to another, and you MUST get a powdercoated cage. their paws are very sensitive, and if you just get an aluminum or galvanized cage, they get some kind of iron poising and will die.

i had 2 of them years ago and they were so cute. but their life expectancy is not long. they have a history of falling wrong and it causes sesures and then they die. trust me i know from experiance and it's very sad to have a cute little creature convolsing in your hands. well thats a bad memory, but you have risk with alot of pets. gotta choose what's important to you. just keep in mind they cost $100 usually and cage and all equipment around $50-$100 and both of mine died within 4 months or so? so i would not ever buy one again cute or not my money is too valuable to waste.

i have one currently. The other one died. They have very long lives actually. I think ours is nearing 6 years old (i've had it for two) You just have to pay attention to their diet.

Their cage can smell if you don't clean it.

Another important thing to know is that they are nocturnal...so sunlight hurts their eyes, and can blind them.
