most likely it's illegal to keep them as pets because they are a native wild species (an exotic one at that) so there are certain regulations :/ sucks though either way that you guys can't keep them! they're such cute pets
Hi any chance of using this as stock, I'm working on a graphite drawing series at the moment on native australian animals, the lesser known ones, sugar glider, quokka, quoll and a few others like that, here's a link to my latest sugar glider [link]
You might wanna pick a time when we are flood free. LOL. We had some amazing floods in the last few months, and the odd cyclone. But hey, us Ozzie bounce pretty quickly. Queensland is a rippin' spot for a tour - barrier reef, rain forrests, deserts... we got it all. Except for Uluruu - but we're working on moving that sucker over the border.
There is a big lobby over here to stop American from being able to keep them. They're native Ozzie critters. Contrary to their name, they eat a diet of insects and the like. People feed them all sorts of sugary nonsense like lollies etc which is just not good for them. (end of rant now)
Yes I know. We used to feed him worms. And Vegetables But Idk If the vegetable stuff was good for him. It was the baby food veggies the stage 3 cause they are chunky. Well I hope the lobby does go through those animals are too cute and not too many americans know how to care for them.
Well, Sugars are actually dead fast. I would know especially since We just got two for a late Christmas present. That little guy seems to be packing a bit of weight for a glider, though. Maybe he's just a bit slow because of it.
*snickers* I have to ask, have you ever seen a Sugar Glider in person? I don't mean to be rude or anything but it doesn't seem like you have. I own two suggies and let me tell you, they are anything but slow or sloth-like.
You are not the first person to say that. This little guy was at the zoo and I was just saying what I saw. I'm more than happy for people who are in the know to set the record straight. God forbid we insult the sugar glider owners out there! They might send a bunch of gliders over to rough me up in the night or summat.
That might have been why. They're nocturnal and so if you see any during the day they're likely to be unhappy about it. And you think that's funny now but let me tell you, those face hugs of doom are more evil than you'd think.
