I love my suggies!! they make absolutely wonderful pets! BUT! lol & heres the big BUT! ...they have special dietary needs, housing needs,patients (for bonding time) & they cannot be kept alone.. they need a cage mate..but they are alot of fun..we have a tent we set up & play in with them & they will bounce from one hand to the other,then to your head ,then back to the hand jumping, they do snuggle once they bond with you..their are many people that carry them around inside there sports bras lol ..they can be the sweetest lil things on earth, but then they can be the crabbiest as well. you should go on youtube & run a search on sugar gliders, theres a multitude of videos on there! lots of fun to watch as well..
Thank you everyone for all the compliments!! Yes they are nocturnal, ours start comming alive & ready to spring into action around 9pm & sometimes even 3am they wont wake up, they are so funny how they vary at times..They are very sweet little things, they just take the right person to own them...theres alot of bad information on them do to alot of mill breeders in the states *BIG SHOCK THERE* theres many efforts in the works at shutting down these mills, I just doubt they will get the job done..seems anyone can get a USDA license & do what they want..its a shame what some people have went through trying to own these sweeties..theres many owners that put leashes on them! & thats just cruel! they have a patagium(gliding membrane) & many a suggie has had them torn do to people being misinformed & using a leash!
If your ever interested in owning one of these adorable creatures,or would like to learn more about them, just let me know...theres a couple very informative forum sites, with very helpful people & they can direct you to reputable breeders or suggie rescues, theres many many sugar glider rescues with sweet little suggies needing rehomed! people from all over the world are on these forums

Wow, I so want one too!! I noticed my local pet shop could order them in a few months ago and have been very tempted ever since! I'd quite like a pet skunk too, but my parents aren't too keen on that idea!! #rolleyes#
They look very fit, healthy and happy - they are a credit to you Laurie, you must be very proud
Thank You SO MUCH!! what a kind thing to say!! I do the best I can for my furbutts & fids...they have me trained so very well! if u ever hear a suggie bark...Think of me-being yelled at to get up out of bed & feed them their mealworms &yogurt drops LOL!
I noticed she had a bump a week ago but was just waiting around to see how it went! sometimes they dont do well their first pregnancy! but this morning, when they popped out of there sleeping pouch for meal worms I was feeding them, I snuck the pouch out of the cage & was expecting one joey! & was pleasantly surprised by a set of twins! omgoodness they are precious little angels! I will post pics just as soon as I can sneek them out of the cage again! cricket I could tell was ready to rip my hand off for doing such a sneeky thing, but I had to check on the babe to see that all was well..they are both strong & healthy looking & the bonus here is! both are females I think!!
