If you happened to miss my first post regarding Sugar Glider Drawbacks, please read it so you get all of the information you need! Continuing from the last post we covered things from their extensive diet to their distinct smell and cage cleaning needs, but we do have more to cover. Unfortunately as adorable as these little guys are, they can be a handful.
With the good there is always the not so great aspects of things. Before I went over the basics of having a Sugar Glider as a pet, but like I mentioned before… Sugar Gliders take a lot of work and devotion, just like having a newborn baby, except you have that baby for about 12 to 15 years. Keep that in mind! If your not quite ready for that type of commitment, you may want to look at other types of small pets like rabbits or hamsters. Typically in most aspects they are low maintenance and Sugar Gliders definitely are not.
