ALL ABOUT TOYS!
Sugar Gliders are very smart and mischievous little critters that thrive when their brains are stimulated. Whether it’s bonding with you or playing with their toys these fur balls are always looking for something fun to add to their daily lives.
The Pet Glider (website & in store boutique) carries a diversity of unique toys that are safe and fun for your gliders.
-Cork – All the cork we carry, and use is natural and organic. Our cork is thoroughly washed, cleaned and skillfully hand crafted with care and attention to quality and safety to create these top selling Cork Toys for Sugar Gliders
-Plastic (some gliders can carry small plastic toys with their tails)
-Fleece (there are many fleece cage-sets that compliment your cage decor)
-Eucalyptus – Sugar gliders have a sweet tooth – their diet consists of flower nectar, acacia gum, eucalyptus sap and insects. Common to the forests of Asia and Australia, eucalyptus is a staple of sugar glider diets. One study of a Victorian population showed that individuals spent about 43% of their foraging time feeding on gum, 12% on eucalyptus sap and 28% on searching for invertebrates. Place one or more of the eucalyptus sticks in your pet’s food dish or stick them between the bars of the cage, and your pet will lick and chew the sap from the branches.
- We offer fresh cut Eucalyptus Branches, dried and packaged.
- Excellent forage treats for your Sugar gliders or other small mammals.
- Cut into 4-inch lengths and packaged approx. 2.29 oz. (65 g) per package.
- Anywhere between 3-7 sticks per package (depending on the thickness of the branch, sold by weight rather than count)
Healthy treats have several benefits for both pets and pet owners. Treats can lend variety to an otherwise monotonous diet, provide good exercise for teeth and jaws, and add behavioral enrichment for animals that spend their lives in a small, limited environment. Most importantly, treats form a connection between pets and pet owners, assisting in bonding and training.
-Wheel (a favorite quiet exercise toy for all gliders and is a must!!)
All Sugar Gliders are different, some might prefer one set of toys, others might just prefer to run in their wheel. The key is to give them a variety to see what they like! Switching toys around often is a great way to keep them entertained!
