Oh boy. Sugar Gliders.

As I start this adventure, I figured I would get the conversation going.

I've had a few breeding pairs and some rescued ones, but they are very high maintenance critters. Make sure you research the right care, there is a lot bad information on.the web ans even.in books.

We got them from a very dedicated friend of ours. I know I can go to him if I need any help. He should be sending me their food recipe and some good links. He had to rehome them because his work schedule was interfering with their care and he wanted someone who could give them the attention they deserve. We took them in and he can have them back if his schedule changes. We are putting their huge cage together tomorrow(I couldn't get it together by myself). Right now they are in one of my spare bird cages.

They are settling in nicely. They are well handled and each of them came to sniff and lick me in turn. My hands were clean, no worries. I figure that is a good sign that they are showing interest in me. I was not prepared for how incredibly cute they are. Pictures just do not convey the true level of cute. As soon as I catch them out of their hide, I will get some pics.

I didn't even know they were generally kept as pets! Not allowed to keep most native wildlife as pets in NSW it seems...but are in some other Australian states. They are indeed very cute - as are pygmy possums.

I had two and was TOTALLY unprepared for how much work they needed. The ones I got weren't as well handled so when I would let them out to play, they'd just jump everywhere. Lots of friends left my house with claw marks on their faces. And they SMELL! Its a very strong urine scent (and mine were descented...). I kept them for about a year and a half and then did what was best for them, gave them to a couple who had hours to spend with them everyday and experience with them.
They're cute but SO not worth getting if you don't have a lot of time and patience for them.

Yes, well if they're anything like their cousins the brushtail possum I'm sure they're a world of trouble! Like monkeys, they are...

A friend of mine had two, don't know if she still does but as soon as they got out of their cage they would latch on to your hair and wouldn't let go!
If ya don't mind me asking, what makes them so high maintenance? Just curious

Oh goodness. What little MONSTERS!! Oh I just love these rotten kids. After we hear them wake up, we go in to feed them and play. We let them roam in a spare safe room. One is very good oriented. She will run and play, but her mind is always on the spoon. The others will run and climb and jump and chases. They seem to love playing with us. Granted, we are just big moving obstacles. They will play with our hands as we "get them" and will run up us so that they can jump between us. I love the sheer determination when they see something they want really really bad. Getting them back in the cage after play and feeding is an nightmare of cute.
