    hi everyone
    Thought while I was back on here might ask and see if there is any sugar or squirrel glider breeders around in SA on here anymore?
    Been out of this scene for over 9 years so wasn’t sure who’s around these days

    The breeder I got my squirrel glider from has stopped breeding a few years ago...

    However every few weeks (honestly very frequently) they come up on gumtree.
    You'd probably do well putting up a wanted advert or to set automatic notification of the term "glider" in pets.

    They're normally like $300-$450 for a single animal (females more expensive), and around $700-$1200 for groups.


    Edited to add...I haven't really seen squirrels available since I got mine years ago (no longer have them), but I see sugars all the time.


    Another edit: it's worth joining the marsupial societies (one in SA and Vic) to find breeders.
