Default FS in MD: Two Male Sugar Gliders + Large Cage and Supplies

http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/for/115830557.html

We need the extra space in our little apt, so we're going to sell our little guys. Ideally they should be kept in room that allows you to take them out and play with them whenever you like. Keeping them isn't difficult, just two scoops of food each day. Then just refill their water bottle each week, and clean their cage every 1-2 weeks. The pans pull right out so you can swap in new shavings.

PM me with any questions, or post them here in the thread.

2. What is a Sugar Glider?

2.1. General physical appearance

The genus Petaurus Breviceps, also known as the Sugar or Honey Glider, is native to New Guinea and Australia. Their size and appearance is like that of a flying squirrel but they are more correctly described as flying possums. They are marsupials, meaning the female has a pouch where her babies grow after birth. They are also nocturnal and will be most active late at night.
So...they're flying possums?
I can't have pets where I live, otherwise I might consider some flying possums.

Flying squirrels are cool. I'm assuming these are similar?

Yup, they're basically flying possums. They are really soft and playful, but we need more room in our apt. We had them in a house before we moved here, and it was nice b/c we could play with them in the spare bedroom.

i'd love to have either sugar gliders or flying squirrels, but i have no place to keep them right now. one point that should be brought up to anyone interested is that from what i've read, they need attention which makes it necessary to always have 2 so they have a companion.

LoL "flying possom" ? haha

Anywho... Yeah, those little guys are pretty neat! Very funny to watch! My cousin Vonnie had 2 of them a few years ago but she had to get rid of them. They are very high maintenance and require a lot of attention. She had a full time job and was a fulltime student so... but they are definately entertaining!

Nah, they aren't high maintenance at all. You just feed them once per day and make sure they have water. Ideally you should have a spare room so that you can play with them a few times per week. I can pick them up and play with them anytime I like.

They're tentatively sold tonight.

I would love to get them. We've been looking for a local breeder for a while. I'll talk with the wife and get in touch with you

I would take them if they were free. I just lost my pet rat, Baby about a month ago ( ) and was entertaining the idea of anoher furry roomate. They would have a great home here, too, spare room and everything. I cannot afford that much though. Good luck and I hope you find them a suitable home.

Well this gives new meaning to "double your pleasure" :

The male has what is called a bifurcated penis, meaning two shafts and is located on the bottom side near the base of the tail. It is usually retracted but may be exposed when they excrete body wastes or if they are excited or frightened. It will be most noticeable during the mating season when it can extend up to two inches in length. The female has a bifurcated vagina, which means split or in two divisions.

I hate seeing stuff like this... Animals like those should not be pets.

With that said, it looks like you really cared for them and provided a pretty decent situation for them. Please make sure that whoever you sell them to will take good care of them and give them plenty of time outside of their cage. I'd hate to see such wonderful creatures end up with some mouth-breather who thinks that just changing their food once a day is adequate care.[/rant]

Yeah, that's actually precisely why we sold them. We lived in a house which had their own dedicated room, but we were forced to suddenly move (owner died, didn't pay taxes). So, we couldn't really take them out of their cage here. Luckily it's a large cage with two exercise wheels so they got exercise.

The buyer had been researching, and I quizzed him about all the basics. He was planning to buy them from the exact same breeder that we bought ours from. He has a house with a spare bedroom, so they'll have all the interaction they need.
