MattW Posted April 19, 2010 Share Posted April 19, 2010 I've recently taken an interest in potentially getting a sugar glider, in the future. I've done a little research on them in the last day or so, but I'm just curious, does anyone around here have any experience with them? Are they good pets? Is there anything in particular I really need to be aware of about them? I probably won't be getting one any time soon; from what I've seen, they need a bit of space to run around and play, and whatnot, and I currently don't have a lot of space for that kind of thing, where I'm living now. Plus, I've heard that they can cost about $250-300 just for the animal alone, and while I do technically have at least that much money to my name, my bank account would be taking a pretty big hit. I'm in Ohio, so I'm pretty sure it's not "illegal" to have them, here. In fact, from what I've heard, plenty of big name pet stores in Ohio sell them. Not that I plan to get one via a pet store, anyway (I know most people around here advise against getting animals from pet stores); I've had too many bad experiences, growing up, with little critters bought from pet stores. They always got tumors, or cancer, or other nasty diseases. I definitely intend to seek out a breeder, if/ when I decide to buy a sugar glider. Link to comment
