  • i raised them for several years. you just have to keep handling the mean one. be gentle and frequent. offer treats [live mealworms were a fav, as well as hummingbird nectar- but the nectar should only be an occasional treat]. try different treats to gain the mean one's trust, but in the end, desensitizing the mean one to handling is going to make the biggest difference. some sugar gliders are wild caught and may get used to handling, but never truly tame. keep in mind when around children. the male is the meanie? they can be territorial, both over their mate and their cage. good luck! msg me 4 anymore questions

  • np :) the males get a bald patch on the tops of their heads, so its easier to tell them apart. and it's fine to msg me anytime :)
