Sugar Gliders as Pets : The Noises of Pet Sugar Gliders

Sugar Gliders as Pets : The Noises of Pet Sugar Gliders


Hi my name is Elizabeth Cantu on behalf of
Expert Village. We are talking about sugar gliders and some of the noises these guys
make. One thing I wanted people to know about these guys is that they are nocturnal and
one of the ways they look for companionship and to show that they own your house and territory
is by barking so if you feel that this animal might be in your bedroom or your dorm room,
your kids room or in your living room next to your bedroom, they will often times bark
like a small puppy most of the night and for the size of the animal it is a pretty loud
bark. To give you an example it is an arf, arf and you might not notice it if it was
4 in the afternoon and the television was on but if it was dead quiet it is the loudest
noise in the house. These guys make a few other noises as well. They make a crabbing
sound when they are upset. You might be able to find the crabbing sound on line or I might
be able to get one of these guys to do it later. They also have a hissing sound that
they make when they are talking to each other so if you hear a glider making a hiss sound
it is generally a hey I am happy to see you. They also have what is called a purring or
singing sound and sometimes that noise is often heard when they have babies in their
pouch and they are talking to their babies. They also have a sort of hissing crabbing
mix sound and that is pretty much heard exclusively when these guys mate. As a pet owner you will
hear the hissing sound when they are happy. They also make sort of a chattering sound
when they are happy or the crabbing sound if they are unhappy and scared and the barking
sound at night. They do not make it every night but some of them make it two or three
times a night so it just depends on your particular animal.

    Personal Comment: They bark if they're lonely or want attention. Sometimes they'll bark if they're also frightened in the dark. Putting a night light near them will typically stop this issue, and if it persists, maybe you should consider a companion if it's alone.

    During the night, they'll crab if something unfamiliar is approaching their cage or they, once again, may be frightened.

    Next, they don't 'hiss', and they purr when they're having an affectionate moment with you or a companion.

    @Shithra Gliders tend to hiss when communicating with each other or when a female is in heat (she will hiss and then bark once at the end of the hiss sometimes). That purr is what a lot of people call "chirping". It is a tiny little chattering sound they often make when eating a yummy treat.

    Gliders do not bark all night and its not even loud. That is unless you don't pay attention to them. Expert village my ass.

    Only barking episodes were when I was out of town and she was with me in her cage, new environment scared her, other than that it was when she wanted something, I'd share toast with her so when the toaster popped up she'd bark.

    the reason why they bark is becuase the are lonley and the crabbing means they are scared…. and the hissing sound is them cleaning them self and the puring sound is like a cats pur i means they are happy. get you facts right sheesh

    The barking usually stops when I flick on the light and tell her to be quiet – or failing that, give her a meal worm or a few pets on the head. That usually fixes it. Mine rarely crabs at me anymore though and lets me put my hand in her pouch to pet her.

    The simple fact is that Sugar Bears themselves do not make an inordinate level of noise when compared to other traditional household pets. They are capable of making several sounds, including a barking sound (similar to a Chihuahua), and a chattering sound (called crabbing) that is similar to a locust. However, in most cases the only times a Sugar Bear will make these noises for any sustained period of time are when they are either sick, mistreated, or distressed. …what a dumb bitch….

    @thinklilevil don't be stupid, she clearly doesn't hate them, on the contrary she loves them. She's trying to inform people of the drawbacks before purchase…do you know how many ignorant fools think "Oh I think I'll get a Sugar Glider because it's cute. I'll feed it pellets and lock it in its cage all day, it'll be great!" WRONG. And then when they find out the hard way, what happens to the Sugar Glider? It either dies from maltreatment or the owner gets rid of them. She's doing a good thing.

    @xxXTRWLxxX Oh, you must be one of the many "experts" roaming the net. I mean this with all gentility, but…save it. Your comment was a load of bull and you know it. Dr. Burst could lose his license if he pulled a crap like that, and I actually found HIS videos informative. I have two wonderful female gliders myself and everything he has said has proven to be true. They do not stink( Clean cage a couple times a week). They are not messy (They don't like dropping their food).

    Reply
  • senestertrinester

    Continuation: They do, however, require a TALL cage and they CAN have frozen fruits and veggies(but NO preservatives). I am not saying that anyone can handle a Glider, these guys might not be best for the inexperienced pet owner, and if someone does not do their research before getting one, they are in for a very rude awakening, but they are not the little monsters that people on chat rooms are making them out to be(Oh yes, I have gotten the pleasure of enduring chat rooms bullshit) Thanks. Bye.

    They bark when they are bored or sick. Hers are probably both. I own one and if you get one from one of the very few licensed dealers in the U.S. then you will be properly informed on everything you need to know. Do not listen to chat rooms and unlicensed sites. This lady probably believes what she has been told and wants to relay the info, but it's not good info =(

    it's not "negative." it's letting possible future owners know the pros AND the cons to having one of these. That's the greatest service you can do for any animal, lest someone end up buying one and then going "wtf, this thing smells and makes too much noise. it's so much work, too. i just wanted a cute pet to leave in a cage all day."

    Most pellets tell you on the bag they are just to be mixed in with the regular fruit/veggie diets and stuff. The pellets offer more food if they get hungry throughout the day. (Btw I do not have the pellets from pocket pets though)

     Kiosks and pet shops are now acquiring them from hellish breeding facilities similar to puppy mills. They are then peddled as cheap trinkets to customers who buy them on a whim. Confined to small cages, roughly handled, fed improper diets, and forgotten when the novelty wears off, sugar gliders are doomed from the moment they’re born.
    They are not to be domesticated. Please !
