Sugar gliders are very social animals. In the wild, they live in groups called colonies, so in captivity, we highly suggest to interested pet lovers to purchase a minimum of two so every glider has company. Gliders also love being with their owners, inside their shirt or maybe in their pocket, which they treat as their sleeping pouch. But like all other animals, each sugar glider has its own personality. While they are known mostly for being highly social pets, there are some that may have difficulty bonding with new companions and adjusting to its new home.
