About Sugar Gliders

Sugar Gliders originate from Australia and New Guinea, and get their name from their ability to 'glide' from Eucalyptus tree to Eucalyptus tree, drinking the sap. Hence the name 'Sugar Glider'.

They're highly social animals, so should be kept with other Gliders. They're also very affectionate, so you should expect lots of cuddles.

Sugar Gliders are clean animals, and don't require a complicate housing set up. If all their basic needs are catered for, you can expect your Glider to live for 12 - 14 years.

A word of warning though with gliders - as they cling onto things, and climb a lot, you should keep their nails trim, otherwise you may get scratched.

Sugar Glider insurance - why is it important?

Like with any pet, vet treatment can be expensive. And with the improvement of diagnostic equipment, pets have an even better chance of correct diagnosis and treatment. This all adds to the cost of the vet bill. Sadly there is no NHS for pets, so if costs quickly escalate, you can be faced with cost dependent choices. Pet insurance means that you can focus on providing your Sugar Glider with the treatment it needs, not what you can afford.
