Sugar bear is the word that Pocket Pets (PPP)/ the people feeding you ******** at the malls use for Sugar Gliders so that when you search it on google Pocketpets website shows up.. guys PLEASE do your research before you adopt these amazing animals.. I was stupid enough to buy my babies on impulse and THOUGHT I had done my research but failed to realize that the only source of information I was "researching" was from pocketpets.. They told me that they were easy pets.. good for kids and with other pets.. they told me that they could be alone and didnt need a mate.. they told me that all they need is the apple slices that stupid kibble and some glider gravy and maybe some bread every couple of days... OH they also told me that they don't have bones.. WTF!! guys really?!
Please don't fall for this.. they are exotic marsupials from Australia.. They are closest related to Opossums
They need a balanced diet that includes protien veggies and fruit..
they are Omnivores who CAN NOT survive on cat food or dog food..
they must have a large cage and in some state it is illegal to have a small cage.
They are a HUGE commitment and CANNOT be potty trained.. they will bite if scared and it does hurt and can even draw blood..
I don't understand why people take these animal so lightly .. but anyway I'm not trying to talk anyone out of getting them but PLEASE for the animals sake.. understand what you are doing.. don't believe everyone you hear.. by no means am I an expert but I AM an owner and I've found comfort in a wonderful forum full of people who love and properly care for their gliders.. PPP is a disgrace and should be shut down.. I hope this DEBUNKED your topic.. Sugar bears do not exist.. they are called sugar gliders they are in no way a bear.. they are a big responsibility ..
If anyone would like helpful information I go to Glidergossip.com they are great people with experience and they care deeply for their babies
