A sugar glider's penis extends from the cloaca. It is naturally moist and can vary in shades of pink. The penis is bifurcated, which means that it is divided into two shafts. Males will extend their penis at various times. If the penis does not retract for several hours or appears dry, a little KY jelly can help. If the penis still fails to retract, a vet visit may be required.
Sugar gliders have retractable gums hiding the full length of teeth. Their incisors are specialized for gouging tree bark in the wild. Offering glider safe tree branches can help with dental health. Captive sugar gliders may need dental cleaning to prevent tooth loss and infections. Sugar glider teeth should never be floated or trimmed. They will not grow back.
