Caramel Sugar Gliders
Caramels (Peraurus Brevicepes Flavidus) are different subspecies from the Petaurus Breviceps our "standard" Sugar Gliders. They come from Merauke on the island Irian Jaya in Indonesia. We import straight from the island, as wild gliders for our breeding program. They have a light caramel color to a gray stripe and slightly larger ears to give an overall slightly larger appearance. Some have white hands and white wrist, and their tails are usually fluffy and generally held in a curled position (although they can straighten them as well). They are able to carry small objects with their tails.
All of our caramel gliders at Desert Sugar Glider are 100% pure caramel, meaning that they are not crossed with the other species. Caramels Also tend to have a different scent that regular gliders, they smell slightly sweeter. Caramel sugar gliders should not be crossed with our standard gliders, Petaurus Breviceps. The crossing of the species causes the male offspring to be sterile and the female offspring will produce more sterile males.
