Barking, Crabbing, Crying and more…

Sugar gliders are capable of a wide range of sounds that vary from bird-like chirps to dog-like barking. By far their most extraordinary vocalization is the one they make when disturbed in their nest. This is what is called crabbing. It is difficult to describe, which is why I included a video so you can witness first hand. Babies will also cry to their mothers. Sometimes Sugar Gliders will squeak and hiss when playing and fighting and make other unnoted sounds.

To identify each other, Sugar Gliders rely more heavily on scent. Each glider has its own specific scent signature that other members of the group recognize. Males have a scent gland on their head which looks like a little diamond shaped bald spot in the middle of their forehead. There is another gland between their front legs on their chest. Females have scent glands near the genital area and pouch. Sugar gliders “shake hands” by rubbing themselves on each others scent glands. Despite the fact that they communicate by scent, they are not particularly smelly. You may occasionally smell a fruity musky scent, but it is not strong and is nothing like what you would associate with ferrets or skunks.
