Gadget, PingPong, and Boomerang's Biography
Gadget was rescued in 2015 as a spunky young guy. He became best buds with our senior glider, Gizmo, and we were thrilled since both were in need of companionship. Gizmo passed away in spring of 2019 so Gadget was introduced to two new companions, PingPong and Boomerang!
PingPong and Boomerang were found abandoned in an apartment. After a year without success finding them a home, they were brought to us. They arrived in 2017 and they were pretty shy. Since then they have become more confident and are even able to go to public presentations now.
Gadget and his new friends enjoy eating treats and kids love watching them hold their food and munch on it in delight. Sugar gliders have a special way of welcoming you into their group by scent marking (peeing) all over you. Sometimes a lucky audience member gets to be the object of their affection.
All three sugar gliders are estimated to be around the same age, born between 2014-2015, they are wonderful ambassadors teaching about nocturnal marsupials of the rain forest, and the challenges and responsibility of caring for an exotic animal as a pet. We hope they continue teaching for years to come!
