Hi my name is Elizabeth Cantoon and I’m speaking
on behalf of Expert Village. Today we’re talking about sugar gliders and their ability to get
along with other pets. Sugar gliders pretty much don’t get along with any other animal.
They’re aggressive toward animals that are bigger than them even though most animals
with try and kill them. You can’t put them with things that are smaller than them because
they’re predictors and will try and eat them. So, they will try and eat a hamster, they’ll
try and eat a lizard, they’ll try and eat a small bird. If you have a canary in the
house I suggest you keep it completely away from these guys? cages because it will just
look like food to them. Obviously a dog or a cat could easily just bite right through
one of these small creatures. The best case scenario, you might be able to get a dog to
ignore the sugarglidder but the sugarglidder more or less won’t ignore the dog. They will
stand up on their back legs and try and bite the animal. They’re very very territorial,
they’re even territorial toward other sugarglidders so you have to be very careful when introducing
sugarglidders to other sugarglidders. So they’re pretty much an exclusive pet in and of themselves.
You can’t expect them to get along with any other creatures in your house.
