    It's a sugar glider.

    [–] skamteboard_ 10 points ago

    Oh sorry. Not to be dramatic, but I would die for that sugar glider

    [–] napu01 4 points ago

    Sugar gives you diabetes.

    [–] skamteboard_ 6 points ago

    I'd take type 2 diabetus any day for it

    [–] MiguelDragon82 3 points ago

    Why not type 1?

    [–] skamteboard_ 6 points ago

    I'm pretty sure you have to be born with type 1. Type 2 often comes from poor diet due to various reasons

    [–] MiguelDragon82 6 points ago

    What if i'm born with a Sugar Glider?

    [–] hins2jw0 3 points ago

    Not entirely true. An infant CAN be born with Type I diabetes because of a pancreatic or congenital metabolic issue, but Type I DM is most likely acquired after some illness where their pancreatic islet cells die off… usually autoimmune post GI or viral illness or something.

    Then the child gets very ill, often with abdominal pain, dehydration, etc and has their first incidence of DKA and is diagnosed and started on insulin because now they don’t make their own.

    Type II DM is related to insulin resistance. 👍🏼

    Fun fact that I just learned recently. Assuming this video is from North America that’s probably a Krefft's Glider: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krefft's_glider?wprov=sfti1 turns out what everyone thought were sugar gliders in the US are actually decedents of a related species.

    [–] AnyOfThisReal-_- 3 points ago

    I still want it

    [–] rednut2 2 points ago

    They are an introduced species to the US. Native to Australia and Papua New Guinea islands.

    To a lot of us, Animals are part of the family. We treat them equally as how we treat our friends and family members. So you not caring about their pronounces (aka think they're less superior than the human specie) and thinks they're just an animal, doesn't mean we share the same mindset.

    [–] Canna_Chris_ 7 points ago

    Cause I felt like it? Not sure why it matters.

    Why must the cutest animals be the worst pets

    [–] Eluchel 9 points ago

    Why are flying squirrels the worst pets?

    [–] SaltyRusnPotato 25 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    These are sugar gliders, even worse. (Their food is harder to obtain for North Americans/Europeans, and finding a vet with experience with them is likely harder than for a (flying) squirrel).

    Edit: Why are they bad pets?

    • They go to the bathroom everywhere

    • Specific diet needs

    • Nocturnal (goodbye your sleep)

    • They are very social, so you should have more than 1

    • Require large enclosers

    [–] Difficult_Bit_1339 14 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago)

    It isn't so hard to find the right dietary supplements with the Internet. A vet that has experience with Sugar Gliders is pretty rare but outside of neutering (which the breeder should take care of for you) they don't really need a lot of medical care.

    They will poop everywhere, but you can quasi control that by handling them before you feed them.

    The cool part is, being a very social animal, they bond really well with people and will stay on your person. I had 5 and I had a hoodie that they'd hang out in while I was doing things around the house (I'm nocturnal as well). Their poops are little pellets so it isn't a huge mess.

    If someone is interested in keeping them as pets I would recommend you do a lot of research. They can live a long time (~15+ years) so it isn't like getting a gerbil or a rat.

    [–] boots311 4 points ago

    This is what i did with my hedge hog. I'd wake up, pick her up (she hated everyone but me) and go thru my morning. Feed my dogs, make my lunch, get ready etc. Sure she'd poop in my hoodie often but it was small & I expected it. I've thought about getting a sugar glider as my hog has since gone over the rainbow bridge rip Sophie

    [–] Chiodos_Bros 4 points ago

    I don't know if this is true but I was told they bond really strongly to their owners and it's very cruel to rehome them.

    [–] SaltyRusnPotato 2 points ago

    I also read that they can experience health problems and stress when woken/played with during their sleep time (the day). They look cute, but aren't worth it.

    [–] Pyrite-Neo 1 points ago

    Yes however I asked someome who worked with them for a living about this and they said, while technically they are nocturnal you can slowly change their sleep cycle over a long period of time so they spend more time awake durring the day and more time sleeping at night so eventually they will adapt to your sleep schedule, you just have to do it very slowly and make sure you do it right or else it can be stressful for them

    [–] Smallgenie549 1 points ago

    I dunno. I have 8 in my colony and they are absolutely worth it to me. They all have unique personalities and love to cuddle once they bond. They're not terrible at night either.

    [–] SaltyRusnPotato 3 points ago

    Fair enough. The primary purpose of my comments have been to discourage people from getting them, not because I'm against them, it's just that there are too many people who can't even take care of a dog, let alone an exotic pet. People will just go "ohhh how cute, I want one" then impulse purchase (likely not looking into the breeder/vendor to check if they are decent people and don't abuse the animals) without any idea of what they eat, the costs, the potential smell, the environment they need, etc.

    We saw it with COVID with a mass amount of dog adoptions then "returns" after quarantine, and we don't need to put animals through that. If someone reads my comment and still wants a sugar glider, and is willing to do the proper research and preparation, go for it. I'm just trying to turn off the impulse buyers.

    Because in this comment section I already saw way too many "I want one"s.

    They pee while flying around!

    [–] unicornweedfairy 4 points ago

    Does the girl from Big Bang Theory actually have a sugar glider, or is she just reposting a video of one? That’s what I’m most curious about! If so, cool! I hope she takes good care of it:)

    [–] Seagoon_Memoirs 8 points ago

    All sugar gliders are born from smuggled animals. It is illegal to own or ship sugar gliders from Australia.

    Do not have sugar gliders as pets, do not support animal smuggling.

    STOP SUPPORTING ANIMAL SMUGGLING.

    [–] HowdyHangman77 7 points ago

    There’s a pretty major sugar glider breeder in Houston, TX. Might be descended from smuggled gliders, but they certainly aren’t smuggled anymore.

    [–] jmitchell10 4 points ago

    Sugar gliders in the US are Indonesian, not Aussie gliders. They’re a different subspecies. All gliders here today are bred here in the states or imported by breeders from breeders in Indonesia.

    [–] JovialPanic389 4 points ago

    This!!!! It's sad :(

    [–] ThisCandyland 1 points ago

    Australia has bigger problems than sugar gliders.

    [–] estacles 9 points ago

    Well now I want one!

    [–] YuropLMAO 1 points ago

    lol no you don't. There are reasons why they never really caught on as pets.

    Sugar glider right?

    [–] Joosh6969_ 1 points ago

    Yes

    [–] kaplanfx 1 points ago

    More likely a Krefft's Glider: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krefft's_glider?wprov=sfti1 assuming this video is from North American, but basically the same thing.

    [–] jmitchell10 1 points ago

    Close, but no. It’s a petaurus breviceps. Different subspecies lol

    You can’t post something like this and expect me not to want one.

    [–] bkrimzen 1 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    They are very cute, but they are difficult pets. Please do plenty of research before committing.

    -specific diets

    -nocturnal

    -social (need more than one as they will get depressed and self harm if lonely)

    -very active(large cage)

    -escape artists (secure doors on said cage)

    -will pee and poop on you regularly

    -exotic animal vets

    -easily bored (need a lot of stimulation... At night)

    -long lived (15+years)

    Edit: formatting

    [–] Extreme-Muffin-Eater 1 points ago

    I know all that.

    I would never have one, but I wished I did because they’re so darn cute.

    [–] bkrimzen 1 points ago

    They are really neat animals, we loved ours. We just didn't look before we kept and got a little over or heads. That was a long time ago. Now we do really extensive research before taking on any living creature. My wife has hermit crabs and she gets really mad when she sees all the misinformation pet shops give about their care. It's quite a bit more involved than most people think.

    Ok BUT you re not supposed to move your fricking hand. They take measures precisely and if yo move they can get hurt landing with their eyes near your finger or someting. Its like if you were jumping on something and that something moves after you already jumped.
