What Is a Sugar Glider Joey? | Sugar Gliders


As a sugar glider owner, you may occasionally
hear people use the name “Joey” to refer to sugar gliders. The term “Joey” is basically just a descriptive
term for a baby sugar glider. Generally one that’s young enough to stay
in the female’s pouch. A joey is just a term applied to a baby sugar
glider. It doesn’t in anyway indicate anything about
the sex of the baby nor does it indicate any concerns or health problems. It’s simply just a descriptive term that’s
used to refer to a baby or young sugar glider, generally one that’s still within the pouch
or not fully weaned from it’s mother. Most of the time it’s not a term that you
would experience because most sugar gliders are adopted or purchased after the age of
weaning and they are no longer with their mother. A lot of people will hear the term referred
to when a breeder may say, “Oh, my female has four joeys.” It’s just a general term that is used in reference
to a young sugar glider.
