Sugar Baby Beignets Mardi Gras 2020!
It just isn't Mardi Gras without a plateful of sugar, and this year we've found some Sugar Babies to add that extra sweetness!
Sugar Gliders, also known as Sugar Babies, are gliding possums native to Australia and surrounding areas. They are marsupials just like us (Virginia Opossums), and they love to glide from tree to tree at night, eating anything they can find (they are omnivores)! Sugar Babies found popularity in the exotic pet trade, though this type of breeding and transportation can be tragically stressful and cruel to them. If you love Sugar Babies, consider supporting Australian wildlife rescue organizations working to rehabilitate native wildlife and habitats. Australian rescues will need help rebuilding for years to come, and now is the perfect time to symbolically adopt injured or orphaned gliders. You can also check with your local animal shelter—we know for a fact that some shelters regularly take in exotic pets that owners can no longer care for. You can be a hero to animals like Sugar Babies, Bearded Dragons, Tarantulas, and countless others by learning their specific needs and adopting them from rescues instead of buying frombreeders.
