Sugar Gliders are not rodents; they are small marsupials in the same general family as a Kangaroo or Koala Bear, according to Sugar Glider Info. They have been domestically bred as household pets in the U.S. for 15 years. They love fruits and vegetables and they have a gliding membrane that stretches from their wrist to their ankles, hence their name. Sugar gliders are odorless, clean, and don’t need bathing.
