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."
A mosaic is classified by random white patches on the body, feet, and/or tail. Often times you will hear the term "ring tail mosaic", which refers to a pattern of mosaic rings on the tail, although not all mosaics are ring tailed. The mosaic trait can appear with other "variations" such as platinum, and white face. This trait is co-dominate to the wild type coat (classic gray). This means it is almost certain there are no hets for mosaic. If the color is not expressed, the glider will not be able to produce mosaic offspring. There has been some speculation that standard color gliders (gliders that do not display the mosaic trait), from mosaic lines may increase the frequency of producing mosaic offspring when paired with a glider displaying the mosaic trait.
Some lines of mosaics will produce sterile males (females will produce). While other lines will produce males that can be bred. It has been proven that sometime between the 4th and 5th generation bred out from the original sterile line, the males will begin to produce. As of April 2007 mosaics and ring tailed mosaics start at around $1800.00 to $5,000.00 depending on the chances of sterility in the glider, sex, and the gliders line. Rarer genetic combinations do usually cost a bit more.
