The Babies are Here!

March 23, 2009 at 10:33 pm by Admin Misty

The joeys are here!  We have two male 66% leu het joeys again (it’s like deja vu from the last litter).  They’re very cute.  They came out of pouch on March 3rd and had their eyes open on the 10th.  We’re trying to hold them daily to get them used to being handled, so they’ll be nice and tame for their new parents.  They will be available on or around April 28th.  We’ll post some pictures soon.

On another note – Arren’s working hard on getting our new shopping cart installed & running.  We are planning to have some nice products available on our website very soon.

Yay, We Saw a Joey in Pouch!

February 26, 2009 at 10:03 pm by Admin Misty

We finally got to see one of Rikku’s joeys last night.  We were so excited when we saw a little black tail poking out of the pouch last night.  We thought for sure we’d be seeing tails a week or more ago.  It seems like whenever we see Rikku though, she’s got the babies stuffed in there pretty good.  Anyway, we were so excited about that one little tail, that you can imagine our surprise when we got a peek inside her pouch and saw a joey!  Before it happened, we could see the babies moving around like crazy under her belly & she kept going to the side of the cage to hide & re-adjust them.  I finally pulled back our cage cover & got a really good view of the backside of a little grey joey.  Then Rikku came out to the front of the cage & had her pouch still pretty open & was kind of grooming & adjusting the babies & we got a few really good pictures.  Judging by the size of this little guy (or girl), it shouldn’t be long before those babies are out of pouch.  I thought for a brief instant that I might have seen a little white baby in there too, but that may have just been wishful thinking.  With the grey baby still being so light, it’s entirely possible that what I saw was another grey baby or a baby tummy.  Here’s a fun picture we call “Rikku Smash” because she looks like The Hulk ready to bust out of jail…haha:

Still No Tails!

Our female, Rikku, is getting HUGE! We keep expecting to see tails poking out of her pouch, but she’s doing a good job of keeping the joeys stuffed in there.  It’s like she’s actually trying to torture us!  We can’t wait to see them.  I think it’ll be really soon.

Updated Content

I worked on the Sweet-Sugar-Gliders.com site today, adding more content.  I added some more diet recipes, cage information, and a list of sugar glider safe fruits and vegetables.   There will be more cage and diet information coming soon.   I am hoping to post some instructions soon on how to build a cage, including pictures of the cage that my husband recently built.

On a fun note, we have two sugar glider joeys on the way!  We are so excited to see what they look like.  Our gliders are leucistic hets, so we are curious to see if/when we might get a leu baby.  When we do, I think we’ll have a big dilemma as to whether to keep the leu or find it another good home.  Stay tuned for more on that.  We expect to see the joeys out of pouch in a few weeks.
