Ok; so I was just on the phone with my mom, who earlier went to the mall, and to the pet store in the mall, where there were kits for Sugar BEARS, and I guess signs that said they'd be available in a little while. I guess it's a bunch of people(my terms, not her's) that are going to be bringing in Sugar Bears to sell, and they do it once every year.
Okay.... So, let me reiterate that these are Sugar Bears, not Sugar Gliders. My mom said she was considering, that, after her cat has died, and her bird has passed, on getting a Sugar Bear.
I told her it probably wouldn't be a good idea, because from what I've read they're high-maintenance due to their diet, and can be very noisey(that I got from expertvillage videos - and when I looked at the comments, everyone was telling them that the information they were providing were inaccurate: information such as they're only as messy as their cage, they can be litter-trained... stuff like that). I also read today, after visiting the website for the actual association for Sugar Bears, that advancements have been made in their nutrition, and it is safe to make their staple a good pelleted diet.
So...what's the deal? Are they noisey, are they not noisey....are they messy, are they not real messy..... and can they live a long, healthy, happy life on a good pelleted food, or do they absolutely need a natural diet of crickets and grubs, and mealworms, and fruit, and nectar?
Halpz! Plz and thank you.
This way I can update my bookmarks with correct information if need be.
