Isa, the Pet of the Day
Name: Isa
Age: Four months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Sugar Glider
Home: Baltimore, Maryland, USA
   Hi, I am Isa, I am four months old and live In Baltimore. This Little Girl is Sweet as they come - she really thinks she human and makes me feel special to have her.

    She is named Isa, because I name all my gliders after cities in Australia, as that's where sugar gliders originate.

    I am a Maryland Breeder and raise some of the sweetest gliders - Sugar gliders can glide through the air. They glide with these expandable "wings" - actually extra skin under their "arms." they make wonderful pets and become very bonded to the owners. Sugar gliders are wonderful, fun-loving pets and most gliders may be afraid or scared once they are pulled from the parent or existing owners and sent away. So a new glider may crab (that's the sound they make) to scare you away. Some may even bite... but once the gliders are socialized and bonded they don't bite or run from their owners. I make sure my Gliders are very tamed to humans and come to the new owner very friendly. That is not to say the new environment might not scare them and they may crab a little. But once settled in they become some of the friendliest Gliders ever.

    Isa has the best personality. She thinks of herself as human too, and never wants to be in her cage. Gliders don't really do tricks, but I am happy if they don't pee on me. They do love to play, but most of their playtime is overnight as they are nocturnal. But the time we get with a sugar glider is filled with tons of affection, they do love to snuggle and sleep with the owner and they coo and purr. Gliders are not too noisy except for the running wheel overnight - they love to run too, but with some of the new stealth wheels now they are very quiet. They do talk sing bark and make other sounds but not really loud.
