Sugar Glider Sounds

Here are some of the sounds you may hear from your sugar gliders. After you have them for awhile, you'll be able to tell the difference right away.

You may need to turn up your volume for most of the sounds.

Crabbing - self defense or scared sound



Crying- usually heard by joeys



Sneezing - sound made while grooming

Hissing - depends on what they are doing -Sometimes you will hear this when they first wake up, but it can be from "don't bother me" to having difficulty with constipation.
