Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Where do sugar gliders originally come from?

Answer: Australia

Sugar gliders are also from Indonesia. Gliders are typically nocturnal creatures. They live in groups of about 20 to 40. They usually have gray fur, with a white belly, and a black stripe running down their bodies. They also have very long tails. The adults are about 11 inches long.

They usually live about 15 years. My sister has two females, which she named Elphaba (Elfie), and Nessarose (Nessa).
2. Which of the following should you not feed to your sugar gliders?

Answer: nuts

You should hot give your sugar gliders nuts because although they are high in protein, they are also very high in fat. This could lead to obesity in the gliders. Gliders get protein from the yogurt, you can also give them eggs. They have a tremendous sweet tooth, which is where they get the "sugar" part of their name from. Gliders also eat live insects such as meal worms, crickets, and grasshoppers. Gliders also like vegetables.

They love corn, squash, and any kind of vegetable that is sweet. Gliders are just like any other kind of pet, or child for that matter, they are picky about what kind of food they will eat so you just have try all kinds of stuff until you find the right combinations. My sister makes a fruit and vegetable salad for her two.

She gives them corn, peas, strawberries, grapes, oranges, and any other fruit, and she uses the yogurt as the glue to hold it all together. They will not eat the peel of the oranges so in the morning there are peels all over the bottom of the cage.
3. What are the baby sugar gliders called?

Answer: a joey

The glider's gestation period is about 16 days. Females will usually give birth to two joeys, sometimes one, and very rarely will they have three. After they are born the joeys will make their way into their mother's pouch where they will attach themselves to the nipple of the mother. After about two months they will emerge. They will cling to the mother using their tail.
4. Sugar gliders are very vocal.

Answer: True

Gliders make all kinds of noises. When they are afraid they make a noise called crabbing. They also make other noises like chirping, barking, and chattering. Unless you have heard them it is pretty hard to describe the sounds that they make. When my sister first got Elfie and Nessa they were always crabbing. Just recently I heard them barking at each other.
5. Other than the cage, what is a good way to transport your gliders?

Answer: in a bonding pouch

You can put them in a bonding pouch. The gliders do not weigh very much so you can string this pouch around your neck. It is an easy way to access them for feeding and petting. And, they will get used to your scent. My sister has several of these pouches because the gliders tend to do their business in the pouches.
6. What should you not put in their cage?

Answer: any kind of plants

The cage for the gliders should be big. They love to run, jump, and yes even glide from place to place. The taller the cage is the better, because then you can put branches and sleeping quarters all up and down the cage. You should be very picky about the kind of plants you put in the cage because some of them may be toxic to gliders. My sister has decorated her glider's cage with all kinds of branches, ropes, and pouches to entertain them. You can spend countless hours just watching them play.

It is really neat to watch them run in their exercise wheel. She also has a ball, like one you would get for a gerbil, and when they are out of their cage she puts them in the balls so that they can get exercise. They love it, and roll all around her apartment.
7. You should spend a lot of time with your gliders.

Answer: Yes

Gliders are very social creatures. They need constant attention from you. You need to spend at least a couple hours with them. And, it is even better if you get a couple of them so that they may keep each other company. That is the main reason why my sister is now the owner of two. At the pet shop they told her that if they were separated they could become depressed and die.
8. Where do the males have their scent glands?

Answer: the top of their head

Males actually have two separate scent glands. One is on the bald spot on the top of their head and the other is on their chest.
9. What family do the sugar gliders belong to?

Answer: Petauridae

Gliders have four fingers and an opposable thumb. They also have very sharp claws. Gliders have webbing between their arms and legs and this is what makes their gliding possible. When my sister first got her gliders, she had them in a bonding pouch. Well, needless to say they escaped.

They were gliding all over the room, and it took a couple minutes to get them. If you are thinking about getting gliders it is probably a good idea not to turn on any ceiling fans when you are handling them. My sister will also make sure that the door to the restroom is closed so that they will not glide into the toilet.
10. A male sugar glider's penis has two shafts.

Answer: true

The males have a bifurcated penis. That is that they have two shafts. The female's genitalia is also divided. Females can support two simultaneous pregnancies, holding one in a state of equilibrium while the other is developing. If you are interested in getting a couple of sugar gliders, you should know that it is a long term commitment, and you should make sure that it is legal to have them as pets. My sister had to do a lot of research before she could get them, and that was a requirement from the pet store. No matter where you are thinking about purchasing them, you should do the research and make sure that you are committed to being the proud owner of these cute little pets.
