Mating?

Ok I have a question... I have done alot of research but i cant find the answers to my questions... ok i have a male and female at the breeding age... I think they were mating but i am not postive so my questions are...

1. do they make some kind of noise when thet mate...

2. does it last just at night or durning the day.

3 and does it last more then one day?


lol thanks for the help.

For sugar gliders the noises would be the girl crabbing at the male also she may call him in a elongation hiss or sometimes bark.

In captivity it might happen during the day or night, but really only when your sugars are active is most likely.

Well yes. It will take place during her estrous cycle, thats 28 days or until shes preggo!

Watch them carefully, males starve themselves before breeding and females are extra crabby, its not unlikely they will receive some bit wounds. Treat them right away if you see them. You dont want the male digging his teeth into an already punctured female neck. That tends to make mating into a battle for the little girly.

What are your sugars genetic btw?
I love punnet squares.

Your a jack AZZ

Twits like you are the reason blind joeys are born.
Do your research before you bring about playing God.

I hope to god one of them is infertile so youll never breed.

That's somewhat harsh, but I do agree. Do your research, and make sure you have people who want the Sugar Gliders.

Ray Ray would say otherwise.

I dont think it is. I own a blind chinchilla because of those exact situation! I love him and do my best for him but god is he so lonely.

He barks at night for other chinchillas to play with him.
He cant have friend because they dont understand why he creates to things the way he does. Or why he dances in circles or gets lost. He tried so hard to be a good chinny for all of his FOUR previous owners who said they were up to his challenges. They all ended up getting bored with him or just couldn't figure out his behavior.

His cataracts has made him completely blind. It developed quickly but at one point, he saw just like every other chinny. I couldn't imagine what its like for everything to slowly disappear from my eyes. For everything to turn into white clouds and then...nothing.

He was bred for pretty colors but if his so called breeder KNEW his parents genetics they would have known that both of his parents were high cataracts risk. But this person thought, I have a nice rare color with an ok color, ILL MAKE MORE!

So...I do get outrageously angry at these people because my little Ray Ray lives a life thats not as great as it could have been.
I know it in my heart he will die earlier than other chins because he couldn't have a chinny family. There is nothing I can do for him. And it kills me insides. It hurts like ****.

If there was just ONE PERSON who had made the decision to say: No! I dont know the genetics of these animals, it would be WRONG for me too breed these animals regardless of my reason.
My baby may not have been born but...it would have been worth it...for that single person to say this.

PS: This is an open suture site from mating. ITS HAPPENS OFTEN, if you cant afford this kind of treatment or wont treat it breeding is even more of a bad idea.


I suggest you take a good look at all of this, this web page is the tip of the ice burg for illness and injury.

If youve done your research you would know the questions you were asking.
Who cares if you just got them. Who cares if they already had a kit.

Separate them. THE END.

Wow. Yikes.

I think bokuza is extremely rude. You catch more flies with honey, my dear.

JenniTaybear - I don't know the answers to the questions you're asking...but unlike bokuza, i'm not going to hide my ignorance by being a jerk and name calling.

Yes...it's probably a good idea to get the male neutered. Unless you know for certain they are not related (even if you got them separately, they COULD still be related), and can keep and provide for each suggie produced, or find them absolutely AMAZING homes with people who know how to care for them, you shouldn't be breeding them. You're a new suggie mom. Learn how to care for these two before you decide to bring more into the world. They're unique little creatures and not everyone can provide well for them.

If you choose to breed anyways...remember to offer mom some extra protein. Always have pellets/staple food available, always have water available, and make sure you have a correct cal:phos ratio.

Do your research, and make sure you have a knowledeable vet who can help you, if you have questions or problems. Plan for the worst, and hope for the best.
