What do the sugar glider eatLike many exotic animals, the Sugar Glider can suffer from calcium deficiencies if it is not fed an adequate diet.[  Calcium to phosphorus ratios should be 2:1 to prevent hypocalcemia sometimes known as hind leg paralysis (HLP).In the wild, gliders live off gum and sap (typically from the eucalyptus), acacia trees, nectar and pollen, manna and honeydew and a wide variety of insects and arachnids. A captive glider's diet should be 50% insects (gut-loaded)or other source of protein, 25% fruit and 25% vegetables.
