Welcome to the Sugar Glider Shop – the UK’s first online shop specialising in Sugar Glider specific items.
My name is Marie and I am a gliderholic! I have been keeping sugar gliders since 2003.
The Sugar Glider Shop started as part of Shropshire Exotics which opened its doors in 2005. Since then I have been selling items to improve gliders lives. The online shop was a natural progression to make good quality products easier to find for people all over the UK and Europe (and even further afield).
As the creator of SGS 2, I take sugar glider health very seriously. I was not happy feeding the high honey diets that were so popular back when I started keeping. Common sense told me that a diet high in sugar is not healthy. Just because they are called “sugar” gliders, does not mean they need sugar. The “glider” part is the important bit, a fat glider cannot glide easily and that is not good.
The SGS 2 diet was developed over many years and is now used all over the world. It has helped improve the health of thousands of gliders. The diet is something I am very proud of and I hope it will continue to grow in popularity. If you wish to try it but do not want to commit and buy the starter kit, contact me and I will be happy to set you up with a trial pack of ready mixed supplements for a small charge and postage.
I have been on the TV a few times with my gliders, Vets on the Loose on Animal Planet, and since those awful and inaccurate articles at the end of 2008, a couple of live news shows, a radio show and even the Wright Stuff, to try and set the record straight about these wonderful animals. I’ve written articles for newspapers, reptile magazines, trade magazines and pet magazines.
