They're also very affectionate and form close bonds with their keepers, defying the expectation most people have of keeping exotic pets. Once you get to know them, you'll find this isn't the only surprising thing about them. With the intelligence of a cat, the loyalty of a dog, and a diet closer to a lizard's than a hamster's, sugar gliders are one of the most unique and rewarding animal companions you can bring into your home. But how can you be sure you can handle a sugar glider's care? And even if you can, is it the right pet for you?
