Platinum sugar gliders have a light silver (powdered) body with a light dorsal stripe and markings. The three original lines of platinums are Haley, Silverbelle and Chance platinum. To breed a platinum sugar glider, the joey must have at least one platinum allele to display phenotypically. EX (PLAT, LEU alleles) (PLAT, PLAT alleles) (this second combination is much rarer and can be referred to as a super platinum).
Platinums can carry the Leucistic gene, but Leucistics do not carry the Platinum gene. Platinum sugar gliders can be both the mosaic and platinum at the same time, making them True Platinum Mosaics (called TPM). Typically, a TPM has a white “flash” mosaic marking on its neck and a white or ring tail.

Summer Heat or Winter Cold: We try to exclusively use Delta 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, Delta 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.
