Maybe they are in Australia, but apparently not here in America. Maybe we need to export some then. I'm joking. These types of sugar gliders are domesticated and are not endangered. Just saying. Anyone who is thinking about getting a glider, does, need to read up about it and study about them before buying. They can be hard to keep, but with some TLC, they're awesome creatures and very neat pets (since they are domesticated in America and are breeded and not endangered) I would suggest buying from a private breeder, as larger companies, not saying who exactly, cross-breed with the same family of gliders which causes medical problems. Need more info, google it, leave me a message, or email me at regalblackrose[at]hotmail[dot]com.
