Sugar Glider Handling Do’s And Don’ts

Follow these tips on handling sugar gliders.

By Audrey Pavia

Do handle a sugar glider in a secure room that has been sugar glider-proofed.

Do wait to handle a sugar glider extensively until after it has bonded with you.

Do handle sugar gliders daily to keep them tame.

Don’t handle a sugar glider immediately after you bring it home. Allow a sugar glider two days to get used to its new surroundings

Don’t hold a sugar glider by the tail when picking it up. Instead, wrap your fingers around the sugar glider’s mid-section and pull it into you cupping the sugar glider in your hands.

Don’t allow children under the age of 12 to handle sugar gliders.
