The Perfect Pet for People with Allergies!
"My family has always loved animals, especially my two
sons, Jacob and Joseph. We started out owning a dog
but we sadly had to give him away due to Jacob's severe
allergies. We then tried rabbits, hamsters and guinea pigs
but he reacted badly to all of them. We've also owned such
pets as turtles and lizards, but my sons really wanted to
have a pet they could be affectionate with. We finally got
a sugar glider and were delighted to find that it
didn't affect Jacob at all! We were fascinated by this
adorable, affectionate animal and instantly fell in love.
The boys now own two suggies and they're a wonderful
part of our family."
Leucistic-Solid white body. Black eyes. No silver, grey or stripe of any kind, known as a Blacked Eyed White (BEW), a leucistic sugar glider is all white with no markings and black eyes. Some leucistic gliders to have faint yellowish markings. The leucistic gene is believed to be recessive to normal (WT). This means that both gliders must carry the gene in order for them to produce a white offspring. Any glider from the leucistic lines is considered a possible het until it has produced white sugar glider. The only exception is the first generation from a white parent. If one of the parents is white, the joey will carry the leucistic gene. Leucistic sugar gliders are still quite rare and waiting lists can be long. Most breeders will require a USDA license to buy a leucistic or a 100% het. This is not a law or a requirement of federal or state authorities, this is purely a preference of the breeder for their own reasons. As of April 2007, expect to pay around $2,000.00 for a white female, and $2500.00 for a white male. First generation hets, normal color gliders with one white parent, generally start at about $1000.00
