After a lot of research i now own a pair of Sugar Gliders. Endemic to Indonesia and Papua New Guinea they share the same habitat with many of the reptiles i keep.
One of the hardest parts of keeping Sugar Gliders is the specialised diet they eat in the wild. In captivity we have to replicate this as closely as possible using a variety of fruits and vegetables that contain the correct balance of nutrients. To give them all of the necessary nutrition supplements have to be added to their fruit and vegetables including, acacia gum, wombaroo and bee pollen.
Once they have bonded to me i hope to bring them to animal encounter sessions.
Pictures coming soon.
