Caramels (Pataurus Breviceps Flavidus) are a different species of sugar gliders than our "standard" Sugar Gliders. They come from Merauke on the island Irian Jaya in Indonesia, and were imported to the United States in 2009.
They have a light caramel color to a light gray, with slightly larger ears adding to an overall slightly larger appearance. Some have white hands with a little white going up their wrists, and their tails are usually fluffy and generally held in a curled position (although they can straighten them as well).
All of our caramel gliders are 100% pure caramel, meaning that they are not crossed with the other species.
Our Sugar Gliders are guaranteed to arrive healthy and safe.
At the Pet Glider, we fly (ship) our sugar gliders on Pet Safe passenger planes that have climate controlled cargo areas with same day arrival. Please be aware that there is the potential for flights to be delayed or rescheduled due to issues beyond our control, such as weather or mechanical concerns. We package our gliders with extra hydrating food for this reason, and include instructions for airline personnel on the shipping crate in case of delay.
The shipping cost is $199 for domestic flights (United States) through United Airlines and this covers up to four sugar gliders. The airline that we use can vary based on your location, so please contact us if you want to know which airline would be used. This cost is for gliders shipped within the contiguous United States. The shipping costs include airfare, shipping crate and travel/sleeping pouch. We ship throughtout the United States. Cities in Canada we can ship to are: Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver and Montreal. Canada is considered an international destination therefore shipping will need to be quoted. In addition, we are Expert International shippers and ship our sugar gliders worldwide. If you have additional questions about shipping to your area, please email email@example.com for more information.
Summer Heat or Winter Cold: We try to exclusively use United Airlines to ship our sugar gliders domestically. Their pet-safe program is top-notch and they have temperature controlled vans that transport live animals to the planes. However, United does not fly to all locations. Some airlines have heat or cold embargoes imposed for the safety of the animals. Live animals are not allowed to take off or land in a location where the temperature is not safe for live animals. We do our best to work around these embargoes. Be advised that we may have to postpone the arrival of your new family member until the weather in your part of the world changes either cools down or warms up.
