    They are adorable.....but let me tell u how much work they are!! We had a pair and they literally poop and pee everywhere!!! And its like every 5 its hard to let them run around the house. They are nocturnal so they want to play and look for attention just as you are going to bed. They are very sensitive when it comes to their diet and if they don't get enough vit c then they can die....ooh1 of ours got pretty sick rapidly...I couldn't find 1 vet to see her. She died within 24 hrs 😔... ooh and if people breed them... it isn't uncommon for mama to reject her baby/twins if she senses something is wrong or needs more nutrition she will cannibalize her babies. Last but not least...I cleaned their cage over and over again...but they would always smell... they are adorable and can make awesome pets...but there's sooo much work that goes into owning them

    I ve had Gliders for 10 to 12 years. I currently have 8. I would like to share my experience with them. This isn t to say whats right or wrong with caring for them just what I have learned from mine. They are exotic pets and require more and different needs than dogs, cats or goldfish. First is time. They are basically nocturnal . I say that because mine are active some in daylight hours but more so at night. They can be noisy. They require and love running in their wheels. Mine seem to do so at different times so expect to hear than and their barking that each do but I notice only one does at at time and not every day or night. Funny thing is when one barks the others freeze in place and seem to just listen. They want and need companionship and do so with other gliders and me. Looking so much like squirrels they marsupials and eat insects, mine love crickets, chicken , leafy vegys and some fruits. They are the most devoted parents with both mother and father taking care and turns while the other eats and exercises.They can, do, and will bite and have extremely sharp claws. Untill they are comfortable, and trusting of their owner they pee and poop on you. This and biting diminishes or stops with time and trust. Some like being held and trust comes easier than others. If you are an animal loving person. Have time and are willing to spend as much as necessary with them they make very good pets. They also are very territorial so start small and " try " to stay there. They do breed prolifically and vets that can and have experience treating them can difficult to find and more expensive. I love and couldn t imagine not having them. My advice for anyone interested in getting them is learn all you can from an owner before getting them. I will be glad to offer more adivce to anyone interested.

    Gliders in the US were traced back to Indonesia in a 2019 sampling. Our gliders have somewhat different faces and much more prominent markings. One part of Indonesia produces the caramel glider, which can breed with our glider but has never been known to make fertile offspring. They also have a different face. Is it possible we have multiple subspecies? There are no legal exports from Australia for pets, so we can't cross them with ours to see if it results in sterile offspring as well.
