Re: Is a southern flying squirrel as a pet good for me and the fuzzy friend?

I've known about southern flying squirrels for a while now. I have been thinking more seriously about this, but to be honest I'm still a :n00b: 1. There's this whole trend of exotic pocket pets, where people are adopting animals that are clearly not suited for life with a human, and neither the pet...

Your experience with rodents is good. I left woodpecker seeds blocks in my cage as a go to whenever. If he likes rodent food .. great.

Don't give up that she will return. I have had the same thing happen and the runaways comes back home. If their cage is in a flyer proof room you can just leave the cage door open and they usually return to the nestbox. Keep us informed.

It's probably illegal to sell domestic flyers especially if they are endangered. Some States in the US make it illegal to capture or sell flyers. This is in the odd areas where a Northern flyer subspecies lives in mostly Southern flyer ranges ... such as the mountainous areas of North Carolina.

Don't worry this is just his nature. When you are with him have you tried letting him sleep in your tucked-in shirt instead of a pouch? I never used a pouch and Chuck just slept in my shirt when I went about my day. Having him next to you and sleeping against you is bonding too.
