Sugar Glider

Sugar Glider

Wednesday, May 10, 2023

A little while ago a member of the public found two baby sugar gliders whose mother had been killed by a cat.

They were a mere 12 grams each with one having a small scratch on the body but otherwise unscathed. Both were feed 7 times a day by syringe and gained good weight for three weeks when unfortunately the glider with the scratch died.

The other glider continued to feed well and put on weight but it became important to buddy her up as they are social animals and can stress if isolated for too long.

Working closely with another wildlife organisation who see a good number of sugar gliders come into care we were able to find our little girl a new home
