    I know they dont really belong here but didn't know were else to put it! Does anyone else own suggies? I currently have a breeding pair (Buda and Bindi)and a mother and daughter(Ciara and China) who will need splitting soon but are very happy together at the moment. thanks x

    I think these are so cute I would like to have a pair , I was thinking a while ago about having some,I've had chipmonks and they were very friendly , I've seen sugargliders advertised in my local paper , I have gone from shell i or shant I I don't knowI think I will one day,I know with alot of patiance they are very good animals and alot slower than a chipmonk thats for sure.

    be very careful with sugar gliders. They need a very strict diet. They stink to high heaven and you must keep at least 2. One may self mutilate if it gets too stressed.

    I have a friend who keeps them and they are very hard to look after.

    Chris is right my friend has 2 and they need a lot of looking after and they cant b kept on their own. Bit worried as saw that someone wanted 2 buy 1 for a child this is a really really really bad idea. Having one would be extremely creul as they often self mutilate if they get bored or lonely, they r very specialist pets im not even sure i agree with them being pets personally but that is my opinion, but as long as the owner is very knowlegable i suppose there is no harm
