Quick Sugar Glider Updates

November 4, 2009 at 12:50 pm by Admin Misty

It has been a LONG time since our last post.  A lot has happened since then.  We have been very busy adding new content to our website, new products to our store, working on a few secret projects that we hope to reveal soon, and expanding our breeding program just a tiny bit.

To start, we have added a LOT of new products to our sugar glider store.  Just to name a few, we are excited to now be offering Stealth Wheels, insects, joey rejection/hand-feeding supplies, yogurt drops, papaya & blueberry treats, and Happy Glider food.  Come and take a look:


We have added several new fruit smoothie and veggie relish recipes and have more to come:


We have added a beautiful trio of sugar gliders to our family and our breeding program.  We have a gorgeous platinum-colored white mosaic boy named Squall and two WFB females named Taji & Takara.  Taji has had one joey already, who just recently went to his new home.  She appears to have one or two more on the way again and Takara may have joeys in pouch as well.  We’re really excited to see what color patterns their babies might have.

We recently added some great information about the different sugar glider pellet foods that are available on the market.  This information will give you a good starting point for comparing ingredients and nutritional analysis of the different sugar glider dry foods.  The information can be found on our dry food page under the “List of sugar glider dry staple foods” section:


Stay tuned for lots more to come as we continue to add new content to our website and new products to our store.  We strive to keep providing you with great information on pet sugar gliders.

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:

Updated Content

January 31, 2009 at 10:29 pm by Admin Misty

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.

New Diet Videos

January 29, 2009 at 7:26 pm by Admin Misty

So far our new website has mostly diet information.  Yesterday I added a few video tutorials.  One video was about how to make the HPW diet.  The other video was a walkthrough of our general nightly routine with feeding our gliders.  Tonight I’m going to work on adding some information about sugar glider cages.  By the time I’m done,  I’d like to have information on cage requirements of sugar gliders, instructions on how to make a cage, and where to buy a cage (possibly with reviews).  Click the “Home” button at the top & navigate through the links on the left to view our sugar glider information.
