Sugar Gliders


Here are our sugar gliders, Rocky and Princess. Rocky is the one with the bald spot on his head and short tail. The bald spot is due to a scent gland that all mature male gliders have. As for the tail, he lost half of it in an accident when he was a baby. Princess has all her parts; her tail is as long as she is, with a black tip.

                               


Here are the new joeys. They came out of Princess's pouch on November 27th, 2001. Their eyes opened a week later. There's one boy and one girl. Princess has her hands full with these two. Rocky is a good daddy, too; he watches the kids while Princess eats and gets a little exercise outside their box.
