"A HUGELY IMPORTANT thing to know is the following: Anything and everything dry that your sugar glider eats may contain aflatoxins. This is a type of mold to which humans are completely immune. A fantastic example is dry corn which is loaded with the stuff. Some of it can even be seen in the red flecks on the corn pieces. It also frequently shows up in catfood, where it is mostly invisible. It only takes a few hours for the mold to develop. Anything that is not frozen can have aflatoxins in it, and if it wasn't frozen before you bought it, there's a good chance that the mold is still there. Your glider will have hideous siezures and tremendous trauma to the esophogus (from vomitting) and to the head (from siezures). If you catch it within the hour, your vet may be able to reverse the effects. You can search for an experienced forum to join to get constant information because if you put it off, you may be too late by the time you need help. Some people ignore the cries of the experienced owners because they think they can handle it. These are NOT hamsters or kittens. They are exotic marsupials that require more attention than your average toddler. Before you buy a sugar glider, meet one in person. Better yet, volunteer to care for one. It will also give you some experience properly caring for sugar gliders before you purchase one. It will give you enough time to learn about them. If your sugar glider dies before age 10, you did not provide a healthy/safe environment for it."
