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.

Classic colored gliders are gray with a black dorsal stripe. The under belly is usually white. Their coloring is striking and a favorite to many. Also called the "wild type" or "standard", it the most common color of a sugar glider in various shades of grey and white.

Mosaic sugar gliders come in endless patterns, showing different amounts of white pigment on their body. The patterns and color are random, but that just makes them more unique!

Piebalds are mosaic sugar gliders that have an unusual patch (or patches) of fur on their body. These are in direct contrast to the mosaic coloring of the sugar glider, and are usually large. This can range from an all black body with a white patch or an all white body with black patch.
