How long have you had Julian and his sons? I have had these gliders for between 5 years and 18 months. I started with a pair and they reproduced over the years. When I first got them, I was told that they were not fertile, boy was that not true. After a few months, I noticed the female looked a bit heavier. A few weeks later, I saw a foot hanging out of her pouch! She had 2 joeys that time. She had about 12 joeys over the years. I gave some away and sold some to interested people.
Where did you get Julian and his sons? I bought the original pair from a teenage girl who could no longer care for them. I have since sold the female and one of her daughters to stop the breeding process. Sugar gliders have to at least be in pairs. They are very social and can actually go crazy if left on their own.I am asking $300 for a rehoming fee as I have a cage and a lot of supplies. I will negotiate with the right person. I will not give them to anyone that does not have sugar glider knowledge.

What should the next family should know about Julian and his sons: Sugar glider needs a period of time to bond with you. I have bonding pouches for that purpose. You simply place the glider in the pouch and carry it with you as you do things around the house. The glider then becomes comfortable with your sounds, smells, and activities. Sugar glider requires fresh food prepared for them daily. They do not eat pellets like a hamster or rabbit. Sugar glider live almost as long as a dog.
