Mating and Birth

mating photo

Sugar gliders will often mate in the open. When a female is in heat, the male will mount the female's back and groom her neck. Sometimes, if a male is too rough, it could result in a mating wound.

After mounting the female, the male will insert his penis into the cloaca of the female.

The female will begin birth by licking a trail from her cloaca to the pouch.

After approximately sixteen days, the female will give birth. The male may assist her or show interest in the birth.

The joey will emerge from the cloaca and crawl to the pouch.

A newborn joey is about the size of a grain of rice.

Once the joey reaches the pouch, it will crawl inside and attach to one of four nipples inside the mother's pouch. It will remain in her pouch for the next sixty to seventy days.
