  1. Triming thier nails is absolutely necessary, here is the trick, give them something that they really like to eat to distract them and then just cut the tips off, start with the pinky and save the thumb for last because the thumb is the most sensetive and they will notice, the second most sencitive is the index finger. I only need to trim the two big nails on the back feet and there is no sensetivity there, the smaller back nails are very sensetive and I usually never have to cut them, just keep in mind only trim the sharp tips that punture your skin, leave the rest so you don't hurt them and they can still climb

    Good Luck

  2. I don't think you should title the video "how to cut sugar glider's nails" when you spend the whole video saying they don't need it, and at the very end say a vet should do it.

  3. Wow.  This guy needs to learn about gliders before making videos.  I HATE when misinformation that is potentially dangerous goes around like this!  Gliders need to have their nails trimmed routinely otherwise they get too long and can get caught in fleece.  I had a friend whose glider ended up dying because it got hung up in fleece due to nails being too long, it stayed caught for hours they had to have the toe amputated and within a week the glider died.  I cut my own gliders nails, they sit in their pouch on my lap munching on meal worms while I snip, snip, snip.  It's much less traumatic than going to the vet to have it done, but whatever you have to do, get your gliders nails cut!

  4. Why is the title "How to Cut a Sugar Glider's Nails"? The video has nothing to with HOW TO… BOOOO!
