Default Sugar Gliders... school me on em

ready...set...go...

thinking of picking one up to kind of grow up with my 3 year old daughter. She and my German Shepherd aren't really the greatest of friends.

Anyone with real world experience?

My wife and i had one when i first came to Thailand.
Hand raised on a dropper and had it for about 3 years until it had developed a compulsive disorder where it chewed it own stomach out and had to be put down.

Moral of the story is, they are communal creatures and hate to live alone.

Get 2 if you want to avoid heartbreak.

a cat could swat a sugar glider out of the air and rip it to shreds, that's pretty cool.




























And then poop in a box.

I did post real world experience. They really are crap pets. The smell is the worst part. They are lazy as **** during the day and once you want to go to sleep they start yelling and it's awful. When you play with them they try to bite you and they will piss on you or **** right on you.

I knew this hot chick in college that had some, they were kinda fun to play with, but seemed rather wimpy, like they would die easily.

Oh and tittywop, because I care.

srsly they're not cool. a parakeet has a much better chance of being a much cooler small flying friend for your little girl, as long as she understands it is going to take some time for it to like her.

5 sugar gliders = lots of poop and pee

from what I read, when they are the only one or two at the most, they tend to socialize with humans better because they don't have a "pack" or something.. I don't know... and birds... don't they have lice or something

It's cool to see one jump around and crawl everywhere with it's little fingers. But I would NEVER get one, get a chinchilla, it's like it's "fat" cousin.
