gliders are alot more work than a hedgehog.  and you can't just hand them off to someone else.  these guys become family, and will be heart broken if you just give them up.  sg's are not like other caged pets where you can ignore them most of the time,  they require alot of work,  and not just in interaction.  they have diet requirements to be thought about. 

i got my first one at 18 and i (this is just me)  was not responsible enough to care for him.  sadly i killed him.   but my point here really is that these are the kind of pet that you when you decide to get one you make a lifelong commitment to these sg's.  its a marriage and not a fish that you can just flush down a toilet if you get bored of him.

now having said that gliders are the best guys i have ever had.  i love stitch to death.  they are so much fun play with.  stitch is a part of my family, which now consists of one cat one dog(who my mother stole from me)  and stitch, and soon two new SG's.  and tom, girls are suckers for gliders :-P

but really you have to do alot of research and alot of thinking.  think of taking on gliders like having a kid.  they truely are alot of of work but a blessing to have at the same time.

sorry im one of those people thats not really good at talking on the phone. i would love to talk because i am very interested in them and they seem really cool and when i get home from school i need something to do.(i finish hw quick). i just need a new pet and saw one of these guys at a animal show i went to with my dad. i fell in love and started to look them up and read about them and all the stuff i did with hedgehogs and my dog.

i feel the exact same way. i'm with you on the point of being sooooo interested in them.  my stepdad's son (woah i never realized that would make him my stepbrother) used to have one, but when he moved to new york he had to give it up.  my stepdad never took care of it, he let eric do all the work, but he says it's a great pet and that's what got me i looked it up on google images and fell in love :]

i'm homeschooled so i'm home allllllllll day with nothing to do except use the computer and my mom hates it when i'm on the computer all the time, so i need something to do during the day....
i've had a zillion guinea pigs so i'm used to taking care of small animals, but i know that sugar gliders are more work.  cora i would call you too but i'm 5 hours ahead of you (if you're eastern standard time) because i live that makes 6:30 there 11:30 here....

hoping to get a suggie in july! :]
