PREPARING YOUR HOME
Having a safe environment is important and many of the things we don’t think about are the most dangerous in our homes for Sugar Gliders. Be sure to go over the checklist below to help make your home Sugar Glider safe. Bathrooms are known to be the most common area to bond with a sugar glider, so we will start there.
It is not advised to allow your glider to have access to the rest of your home unless under close supervision as many accidents have happened.
Kitchen area is an area where your sugar glider can run behind and in your refrigerator and stove. Sugar gliders have been killed by electrical shock this way. It is recommended to keep your sugar glider out of this area of the house if at all possible.
