Animal Stories - Sugar Glider

Animal-World Information about: Sugar Glider

   Sugar Gliders get their name from their "sweet tooth" and because they have a fold of furred skin stretching from their forefeet to their hind feet which they spread out like a kite to help them glide through the trees searching for insects and nectar!

So I just got a sugar glider, I've had it for about 2 months... I've looked on the internet and can't find the answer to my question. I change its water every morning but every time I change it the water smells like throwup.. what does that mean? And does this happen to anyone?

    My sweet little Sugar Bear loves half apple juice and half bottled water....sometimes her water bowl will smell a little in the mornings....I'm pretty sure it is just where she spits her food or the outer skin of her fruits, verges and glider chow in it....;)

    Check out the environment section above, and you will see that their minimum habitat size is a bit bigger than that.

    Glass tanks for sugar gliders are a bad idea. Gliders like to climb on the side of the cage. Plus that seems a bit small. I recommend a big bird cage. If you're really into it you can get some PVC pipe, plastic hardware netting and a thousand zip ties and make a cage. That is probablythe cheapest way to get the biggest cage.

I need help. My daughter came home from church camp with head lice. My baby plays in all of our hair. I ve checked him over and over, I dont see anything. My question is can sugarglider get or keep head lice.

    Relax it is OK. Lice are species specific. Sugar gliders can have lice and humans can have lice but humans will not give the sugar glider the human lice. The things we go through with our children and our pets. You are OK - your sugar glider can't get human lice.

    Tea tree oil is extremely effective on human head lice. Most people only use 5-10 drops in their shampoo as a preventative method for lice, but I have to question whether that amount is adequate to kill an infestation. I have personally used an entire capfull before on my wet hair and scalp for dandruff and another time when I caught bedbugs from a hotel room. Since then I wash every load of laundry with a capfull as well, and add two caps with water to a small spray bottle to sray down carpets, beds, pillows and furniture, and anything else i cant throw in the washer every2-3 weeks. As far as for gliders , Im not sure if its safe, and wouldn't try it on them , but every human being on this planet who now has or has ever had to deal with any type of parasitic infestation should know about tea tree oil and how incredibly effective it is at killing literally every parasite known to man, as well as many viruses and strains of bacteria. Excuse my slight lack of relevance and deviation from the topic here which is likely to be noted, insulted and disected by the next naysaying critic who has nothing better to do. Tea tree oil kills lice. Personally, I keep my sugar bears in a seperate room with the door closed when I use tt though. I'd rather not take the chance.

Last Saturday 10/18/14 I went to my moms.I came home later that night and found my male sugar glider (Fred) dead in the bottom of his cage. I investigated because the night before he was like he always was so happy and full of spunk. As I was investigating I found his face and stomach was wet but the cage and everything in it was dry. Then I noticed his favorite to was the only item in his cage wet it did not smell like he soiled it. It was like someone poured water from the top of his cage while he was looking up while playing on his toy.but no one was home with him but I have noticed someone has been coming while me and my husband are gone. Can someone please give me some of their input. Thanks for yalls time.

I have two male gliders about one year old. They are brothers and have been together since birth. I got them from someone who couldnt care for them properly. I give them all the best food and toys and a big cage. I play with them as much as possible but lately it hasnt been enough. They are kind to me and dont bite but will only stay on me for a few seconds then try to escape my room (which has happened recently). One has gotten out twice and i think the first time he was out all night long. I also think since getting out into a very large space this has been their only goal. Is there anything i can do to help curve this?? Im in desperate need, i hate keeping them locked up.
