Sugar Glider Supplies

Your wide-eyed and bushy-tailed friend is as sweet as can be, and you can help keep her happy and healthy by buying the appropriate sugar glider supplies and sugar glider accessories. Whether you’re bringing home a new furbaby or you’re treating your pal to something different, there are many options when picking out sugar glider products.

Choosing the right sugar glider habitat is one of the most important decisions you’ll make for your fur-iend. When an only child, her cage should be at least 3 feet by 2 feet by 3 feet. Sugar gliders are notorious escape artists, so the bars should be no more than ½ inch apart. Cages that are multiple levels are fur-avorites, like the MidWest Critter Nation cage.

You can keep her comfortable by adding sugar glider bedding to her cage and providing a small pouch or bag for sleeping. Her cage should have branches and shelves for perching and climbing, sugar glider toys and essentials like a food bowl and water bottle. Also, sugar gliders are omnivores, so your furbaby has specific nutritional requirements that need to be met daily with special sugar glider food and fresh veggies. Plus, stock up on her favorite treats like Peter’s Apple Slices and Exotic Nutrition Fly Larvae.

What is the lifespan of a sugar glider?

The lifespan of your sugar glider is approximately 10 to 15 years, so expect her to be a part of your family for a long time! You can help her live a long, healthy life with guidance from your vet, so it’s important to take her for an annual visit. She has three major needs: water, food and a habitat that provides the right temperature. Sugar gliders need warmth, so keeping her cozy helps her stay healthy. Plus, like many petite pets, make sure she stays hydrated and has access to the nutrition she needs to thrive.

How do you prepare for a sugar glider?

To prepare for a sugar glider, you should do your research and make sure this exotic pet is right for you. Sugar gliders are social creatures and need a lot of interaction with you, especially if they’re not living with a fur-iend. You also should find a veterinarian in the area who has experience taking care of exotic pets. Your new sugar glider prefers warmer temperatures—she’ll be most comfortable between 75 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit—so she should be kept in a warm room in the house but not directly over a vent or too close to a heater.
