About Us
Charlie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Charlie
Age: Thirteen months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Sugar Glider
Home: Louisville, Kentucky, USA
   This is my Sugar Glider, Charlie. I haven't had Charlie for long. He's very curious about everything. He's still getting used to his new environment, so still a bit timid. Hopefully as more time passes he'll bond with me more and be able to go places with me that he won't feel freaked out.

    Charlie is on the BML diet, which is a special blended foods diet that is easy for him to eat. He also gets frozen fruits and veggies daily along with insects (super worms, mealworms & canned grasshoppers) as well as a pelleted sugar glider food soaked in yummy apple juice. He is my second Sugar Glider. I had one years ago and recently decided to have another again.

    In case anyone's concerned, the "bald spot" on his head is oil from a scent gland on his head. It produces more oil since he's reaching sexually maturity now that he's a year old.
