Met this little guy at the mall! #whatthefuckheissocute #sugarglideratthemall #whodathunk #socute #sugarglider #shopping @exceptional_dreamer
This is so sad! Since it is at a mall you must be at a Perfect Pocket Pets booth. This male has clearly been busy scenting A LOT, probably becuase he was in a cage with wayyy to many cage mates and felt like he needed to keep rescenting over other males. Look at all those people and children around, phones going off, kids yelling, people talking, his little ears were probably going nonstop. Gliders are nocturnal animals and should not even be awake during business for extended amounts of time, I wouldn’t be shocked if PPP has switched their sleeping schedules just to they can be picked up and held, passed around all day. His head looks sorta big compared to his body, and with scent glands that prominent he should be bigger, probably becuase he is feed pellets and an apple slice (if that) everyday. The care PPP gives to their gliders is atrocious.
This is not a bash on the original poster at all! Most people that see PPP booths have no clue that they are looking at horrible conditions. The salesmen do great jobs as passing myth off as fact and give horrible advice and information. (Lets not forget a few years ago when their own cages were coated in toxic plastic and they lost 1/2 of their own gliders and tons of gliders that were adopted out to people in a super short time span) But When I see an example of how horrible Perfect Pocket Pets are I need to seize it!
I keep hearing bad things about Perfect Pocket Pets.
