In the wild, Sugar Gliders eat fruits, vegetation, bugs, and other little critters. They also eat something that is classified as gums. Gum includes nectar from plants and sap from trees and other plants (especially the sap from Eucalyptus trees). We can’t really give them gums, but we can simulate them. One way is to mix this product in water and add it to a second water bottle as an occasional treat. They love the sweetness and it is a great energy booster as well. You can also mix real maple syrup and water half and half for an occasional treat.
