Sugar Gliders

Pan Handle Exotics

Common Name: Sugar Glider

Scientific Name: Petaurus Breviceps

General Information: Sugar Gliders originate from the rainforests of Australia and Indonesia.

They are nocturnal animals and will wake up around dinner time. The average lifespan is 12 - 15 years. Adult size is approximately 6.3" - 7.5" plus the tail.

Sugar Gliders must bond with you however, once they bond with you its for life! In most cases Sugar Gliders do best in pairs or small colonies.

Diet: There is much debate on the appropriate diet for sugar gliders so what works for one person might not be what the next goes by. we have "tweaked" our diet over the years to one we are very happy with. We give a staple diet of Exotic Nutrition Sugar Glider Diet with Eucalyptus and Papaya and monkey biscuits which we carry both in store. At night we offer fresh fruit, vegetables, protein and a few times a week one teaspoon of yogurt per glider (don't use a low fat which will have aspartame or other sugar substitutes).
