    I used to have sugar gliders.
    They require special diets. Look up their diets online. There are several to choose from. They love crickets and mealworms, fruit, chicken, veggies, monkey biscuits, which should be a part of their diet as well.
    You should get a cage at least 3 feet tall, 2 feet wide, and 2 feet deep. Make sure you get perches, pouches, hammocks, and toys. I make them if you're ever interested (but let me see because I'm expecting soon.. there are also many people who make them though).
    You should get a bonding pouch too, or have some sort of bonding time in the bathroom or a tent (yes, a tent lol), Soon she'll be so tame, you'll be able to carry her around in your shirt.

    Oh good toys are beaded toys and foraging type toys. You can also use baby toys and a WHEEL, they love wheels. The best ones right now are Wodent Wheels or Stealth Wheels.
