Help! Strange Noises! (Gliders In Heat)

All female sugar gliders – whether they are housed with intact males or not – will go into heat every 28 days.

Road Trips: Three Week OOP Joeys

Before I begin, let me say that I would NOT recommend traveling with joeys this young. Travel stresses gliders very much and this is a time that you want to keep stress as low as possible to reduce the risk of rejection or worse cannibalization.
