No not at all lol..they're real sensitive animals that take a lot of time and attention to keep them healthy and happy. And its important because if they're not happy they can self-mutilate which means bite/kill themselves. They're also very expensive to care for properly

I wouldn't personally get them around young children because they're the type of animal that you have to be very gentle with. If they feel threatened or under restraint in any way they will bite and they bite hard. There's no illness that can pass between humans and sugar gliders but they have a sensitive respiratory system and can get respiratory infections and urinary tract infections very easily. The only way to treat either of these issues is to take them to a special exotic veterinarian.

Also, sugar gliders are not cheap. It cost me right at $1,000 to get mine, their cage, and everything they needed initially. Not only that but you have to keep buying them new toys every month or every other month to keep them from getting bored and depressed

Also forgot to add gliders live for 12-15 years so it is a VERY long commitment. Its not in a gliders nature to be moved around either so when you get one you do need to plan on keeping it for its entire life because the stress of moving into a new home can kill them, especially if they're already unhappy
