Sugar Glider in care 2010

"Suges" the Sugar Glider is one of the luckiest animals I have raised. She came into my care after she was found at a sawmill ready to be sliced up into logs. Thankfully her shrill cries for help where heard before the inevitable occured.



Exhausted, scared and very dehydrated I picked up her frail body and offered her some rehydration fluid. With the enthusiasm of an explorer who has found an oasis in a desert she drank and drank and drank some more.


For the next couple of months Suges was put to work eating bush foods and exercising in the glider rehab centre, building up muscle and learning to glide until she was eventually released back into the wild.
