Don't Run Hop by LxTrix Don't Run Hop by LxTrix
This is my pet sugar glider Jinx. He is a year and five months old as of July 9th. Took a while to get this shot. Sugar gliders are considered exotic pets. I also have another female one named Jade i adopted from someone who got her abandoned on her doorstep. She doesn't trust humans yet but she at least has Jinx. These are awesome pets but require a ton of research and knowledge before owning.

They are native from parts of northern Australia and the surrounding islands. They are nocturnal. In the wild they eat tree sap and insects but domesticated they have a variety of diets. I feed mine a protein mix of eggs, honey, bee pollen, and wombaroo protein powder mixed together called HPW. I also feed them vegetables and fruit each night. The reason why i got them is they bond to their owners. I can have him sleep on me during the day and he loves attention and comes running to me as soon as i open his cage.

They have little claws so they run all over you and they have little flaps like flying squirrels so they can glide (Hence the name) They also make all sorts of noises from hissing, barking, and crabbing. The only way you'd understand is a youtube video. I enjoyed sharing him with you, thanks for reading.

He's really cute and the picture is nice.
I'm so jealous. I'm Australian and here we can't keep them as pets.

Yeah, I think it's to protect our native wildlife, or something like that (which is also why exotic reptiles are illegal here). A few times when I was little, there was one that lived in the tree outside our playroom XD
