Sugar Glider No-No's
Feeding Your Sugar Glider
Housing, Accesories, Decor, Etc.
We recommend buying a cage that is at least 32''L X 19''W X 36''H (The Larger The Better) with bar spacing 1/2 inch or less. Ebay usually has a good selection of cages at an affordable price with free shipping. http://www.exoticnutrition.com/ also has good sugar glider cages.
We do not recommend making cages out of wood. Certain woods can be toxic and all woods will absorb urine creating and holding odors. Also metal that is not coated is unsafe.
There are other options if you are wanting to make your own cage. The PVC cages and Coated Metal Shelf Cages are a safe and sometimes cost effective way to build large custom cages. Plans for these can be found on Google.
Pouch Sets And Bonding Pouches
We currently have Brand New, Custom Pouch Sets in various sizes and patterns as well as Bonding Pouches here for you to look at and purchase when you pick up you Gliders. Pouch Sets are safe, easy to clean items that hang in you cage for them to climb, jump, and swing on. They also include the necessary pouches for them to nest in. Bonding pouches are sleeping pouches with a zipper top, screen vent, and carry strap used for bonding and taking them places securely. All of our sets and bonding pouches are made by a highly recommended seamstress Christine Glover. She makes excellent quality, safe sets for a very affordable price. If you are wanting to order ahead of time or if you need a new/extra set contact her via her email. She usually has some pre-made sets or can make you a custom set in your choice of fabric. She is working on getting a website, but for now you can contact her via her email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let her know Carolina Sugar Gliders sent you.
Cage Pan Liners
You will want to have something in the bottom of the cage pan to absorb their droppings. We find that these liners do the best job!
We recommend Jana's Suggie-Shoppe at www.gr8pots.webs.com/ for her wonderful custom cage liners. It is by far the most affordable thing to use for a liner in your cage. They are washable and absorb odor better than anything else I have ever tried. Let them know Carolina Sugar Gliders sent you!
Sugar gliders love a wheel to run in. If you are looking for a quality safe/silent wheel for your glider, check out the Raptor And Stealth Wheels. They can be purchased here http://atticworx.com/1Stealth%20Wheels.htm
Gliders love enrichment and foraging toys. There are lots of differnt items available on Etsy. https://www.etsy.com/search?q=sugar%20glider%20foraging%20toys
Our gliders love yogurt drops, meal worms, and dried papaya as a treat. We usually purchase these from http://www.exoticnutrition.com/suglhetr.html.
If you have found something that you like that is not on the list and you don't know if it is safe for your suggie, please don't hesitate to email and ask. We will be more than happy to help you make sure you purchase the right supplies for your new baby.
