Animal Stories - Sugar Glider

Animal-World Information about: Sugar Glider

   Sugar Gliders get their name from their "sweet tooth" and because they have a fold of furred skin stretching from their forefeet to their hind feet which they spread out like a kite to help them glide through the trees searching for insects and nectar!

For the most part I thought it was pretty good, however I do have one statement, sugar gliders can't be leashed. They risk injuring themselves. The reason they can injure themselves is the tissue on their side is very delicate and can be cut by the leash.

My friend has a few sugar gliders as pets, but recently one of the male gliders has a wound in his neck. And the weird thing is that it had happenend before, but that male has healed just fine.
I'm a bit worried about that little guy so I was wondering what I could do for my friend and his glider.

The surrounding area of the wound is bald and in a perfect circle. The wound itself isn't really big. And there is nothing in the cage that could make that wound I believe.

I am a sugar glider breeder and I'm 14. I breed greys, wfb, and red. I love my gliders and can't express how important it is to know what you are getting into. I for one enjoy every minute of it, but for some people, they just can't handle it. That is why there are so many for sale, its not because too many people breed them. I have fun with it while I see my gliders enjoying it too. I have done a ton of work on my gliders cages and play areas also, to keep everything as safe and as happy as possible. I LOVE MY GLIDERS
