    well I looked up katydid and I always call those leaf bugs. haha Who knew? They fly?! I have only ever seen them just sitting on my wall or something as if they cant be seen there. lol. I think I might have heard you last night even @JAKEISGREAT.
    Looked up sugerglider to get more of an idea and oh my gosh they are tiny and cute! Had bever heard of one in my life until today! Also can we get a video maybe of it gliding out of your cupboard?

    The boobie squirrel comment made me laugh, LOL.

    Jacob is SO cute. I have always thought gliders were adorable. I haven't seen any around here.

    We have neighbors who at times have sign out front..."Sugar Gliders for sale" I always wondered what type of pet they made.

    Just how much work, you mention chopping veggies etc....we did that when we had an Iguana. What else do you need to do, because my boys bug me everytime they see the sign and I have to forewarn them.

    Always with me

    @Bella'sMom
    They're a lot of work. You chop veggies/fruits like I said. Jacob is on what's called the high-protein wombaroo diet, which means in addition to the veggies he eats a special protein supplement mixed with bee pollen and eggs that I make for him. Gliders need a very careful diet with a closely monitored phosphorus to calcium ration.
    They're nocturnal. In Jacob's case if I put my hand in his sleeping pouch to wake him up during the day he'll bite me. They do bite, especially ones that are scared or have just been brought home. It's not horribly painful, and Jacob has never drawn blood on me. They're super active at night though. They bark,crab, run in their wheels, shake the cage, ect.
    They need an hour of 'tent time' every night. Which is where I put up a little pop tent in my bedroom and sit in there with him while he runs around. Without human interaction, especially if you only have one glider, you can run into the problem of them picking holes in their skin out of boredom (it's called over-grooming).
    All gliders, but especially the males, have a musky smell a bit like a ferret. It's not near as strong as a ferrets though. If you don't clean the cage at least once a week it can become pretty noticeable.

    They're really great little pets. Just ones you have to know what you're jumping into from the get go. If you really are thinking about them then this huge article on GliderCentral has pretty much anything you could wanna know.

    @Lucy-licious!
    Florida as bugs are WAY worse than California's bugs. Those roaches they call palmetto bugs could carry you away! Google palmetto bug images you'll see what I mean.

    Do they like to interact with people? Or do they prefer to be by themselves?

    Once they bond with a person, they LOVE interaction. Bonding can take a while though. I spent a lot of time just sitting in the little pop tent letting Jacob and Jeriah use me as their human tree. When I first brought them home they would lunge and crab (which is a very odd noise) whenever I put my hands near them. Now when I open the cage door Jacob jumps onto my and runs into my pocket or my bra. Really bonded gliders will even glide to you when you open your hand. They'll bond with more than one person sometimes. Jacob loves his vet for some reason.
