At The Pet Glider, our many years of experience in hand-raising, breeding, and caring for sugar gliders have taught us a lot about what makes these furry charmers happy. For one, their nocturnal body clocks mean that they sleep during the day and become fully awake during nighttime. Being alert for hours with no one else around can be a sad experience for anyone, and we wouldn’t want our sugar gliders for sale in San Antonio to be lonely once their human families turn in for the evening.

Every sugar glider owner knows how fun it is to watch their furry friends look for food and treats hidden around their cages. Hiding food items and nutritious treats greatly benefits the adorable animals as this develops their scavenging skills and familiarizes them with a variety of healthy edible items. Here at The Pet Glider, we can help you take this cute activity to a whole new level and make pet feeding time more fun and exciting. Using our variety of first-class sugar glider supplies, you can turn your room into a safe environment where your pets can experience what it’s like to live in the great outdoors.

Responsible breeders and owners of sugar gliders know that there are several factors that determine whether a particular cage is the perfect habitat for their cuddly pets. For one thing, cage coating must be correct to avoid paint from peeling off easily and contaminate the food that sugar gliders eat. Here at The Pet Glider, we recognize that not every pet owner has the time to come to pet shops and assess prospective cages for their pets. That is why we’ve already made sure that all of our available sugar glider cages for sale meet the highest standards for housing your furry friends.

With the right combination of care and understanding, a Houston sugar glider can be a wonderful new member of the family.

Here at The Pet Glider, we have a strong commitment to ensuring that our sugar gliders have only the best nutrition available.  That commitment extends to your gliders as well, whether or not they were raised here.  In addition to our Pet Glider Fresh Diet (aka The Priscilla Price Diet), our recommended nutritional plan includes the cereal and monkey biscuits that we have both used in-house and offered on our website as part of our Nutritional Packages.  These have served as a fantastic complement to our homemade recipe, and have nurtured many generations of happy, healthy sugar gliders.  Never one to rest on our laurels, however, we are always on the lookout to improvements that can be made to our overall nutritional package.

That’s why we’re excited to announce the introduction of our new Wholesome Balance Chicken and Rice cereal, which will replace our existing cereal not only as part of our nutritional packages and single cereal items, but will also become our new standard for The Pet Glider’s own sugar gliders.  It is free of soybean meal and soybean oil, chocked full of healthy chicken and brown rice, and loaded with many other ingredients that are specifically designed to meet your sugar glider’s needs and please their taste buds. Thanks to your continued support over the years, we’ve been able to become a distributor for this particular cereal blend, and we know that your own sugar gliders will love this tasty, and nutritious, cereal.  It will be available in the same size and price as our previous cereal, and we will be offering larger supplies as well for those with larger colonies.

A lovable pet that brings owners unending enjoyment deserves to be provided the best home possible. At The Pet Glider, we strive to make that a reality for every sugar glider owner we encounter by stocking great sugar glider cages for sale we know from experience your adorable furry friends will enjoy living in.

The ideal home for a pet sugar glider is one that provides enough space for short glides and has vertical room for it to climb as it would in the wild. At minimum, the cage should be 2.5 feet wide and three feet tall, with vertical bards that are spaced no wider than half an inch apart. Finally, a suggie cage should not be finished in galvanized steel, which can be toxic for sugar gliders.

“A sugar glider by any other name would be as sweet…”

-Probably not William Shakespeare


Chances are good that, if you’ve brought home a sugar glider from The Pet Glider, that little bundle of furry joy had a name.  As the primary person in charge of showcasing our gliders on the website, most of those names are picked by yours truly, the author.  Oddly enough, that process can be a surprisingly time-consuming one, and often the most difficult part of actually presenting a glider to the world at large. The methods can include researching lists of baby names around the world, plays on the parents names or physical traits, gut feelings (“This one looks like Erasmus…”), and quick polls of other Pet Glider staff (“Doesn’t he look like an Erasmus?”).  Everything else is fairly elementary when posting a glider...after all, it *is* a certain color, and it *has* an out of pouch date.  But *who* is this glider?  There, my friends, is the rub.

Of course, all of this is done with the expectation that you, the new sugar glider parent, will be changing that name almost immediately.

While there are certainly far more important aspects of sugar glider care such as what diet you should feed your glider, what toys to have in the cage, and how to bond with your glider, the name that you give your new friend can be the first step in that long-lasting link between human and animal.  As a quick wander through the Pedigree Program will show, there are an incredibly wide variety of glider names out there from the cute and quirky to the surprisingly formal.  For some, picking that perfect name is a breeze, but for others, such as myself from time to time, it can be quite the challenge.  That’s why I’d like to offer a few of the resources and methodology behind the naming of gliders here at The Pet Glider.
