Anyone else own Sugar Gliders?
 
2 Attachment(s)
About a year ago I bought Dolce and chubbies( I call him bubbs for short lol) they are brother and sister and are a bonded pair of gliders. Bubbs is neutered so there wont be any inbred babies lol. Anyways I rescued them from a lady who neglected them. They were never held or played with so its been challenging trying to get them to bond to me, but they are coming around good. Dolce is a lot more friendly and lets me take her out of the pouch and play with her a bit. I am so hooked, and love my little fur babies. So I was just wondering if anyone else has any? Any some good tips on bonding.
The first pic is of Bubbs and the second is Dolce.

I don't own any as pets, as i live in australia and we are not allowed. But when we find injured ones we nurse then back to health then release them were we found them. I really want to keep one though they are soo cute and adorable, but dad always says 'we got them from the wild we give them back'
I don't know any tips about bonding with them, but im sure a quick search on google would bring up some helpful info. I have heard you just need to be patient, and give the TLC.

Thats really cool that you do that, it would be interesting to see them in the wild and there natural state lol.
Yeah thats what im doing, i've been taking it nice and easy with them I have heard that it can take quite awhile for them to fully bond to you.
