Eucalyptus and Sugar Gliders

The ISGA (International Sugar Gliders Association) has designated that Eucalyptus Globulus aka Blue Gum (the only kind we grow and sell) is a “Safe Plant” for sugar gliders.

According to the Tasmanian Primary Industries and Water Department: “Sugar gliders have a sweet tooth – their diet consists of flower nectar, acacia gum, eucalypt sap and insects. One study of a Victorian population showed that individuals spent about 43% of their foraging time feeding on gum, 12% on eucalypt sap and 28% on searching for invertebrates.” and that they are: “well adapted to a diet of eucalypt leaves…”
