Sugar gliders are small marsupials of the gliding opossums group. If you recently adopted a sugar glider you might know that they are nocturnal and sleep during the day. You’ll want to make sure you are ok with their active nightlife before adopting this type of pet! Sugar Gliders are extremely social beings and so adopting more than one is recommended. They are used to living in groups and this way they can be companions, play together, and also help keep each other warm!

Pet Sugar Gliders are prone to low calcium levels and obesity – common issues due to improper nutrition. They need certain foods, and variety is best for this species.
