Please read our entire site BEFORE contacting us.This is a HUGH beginning in doing "proper" research, AND it shows us here at GLIDER INVASION, how responsible a glider parent you will make. WE DO NOT ALLOW OUR JOEYS TO GO HOME WITH 'JUST ANYONE', WHO HAS THE MONEY!

Cotie and Diane Maryland's Top Breeders
Glider Invasion Gliders
MT. Airy, Md. 21771
PET ADOPTION ARE AS STATED:
You will need to call for availability.
With gliders only having 2 births a year, 'TRUE' breeders do not always have your chosen age, color and sex, just sitting on a shelf waiting for someone to come by.
Our sugar gliders are in high demand, and you may very well have to place your order to reserve a particular color/sex. This does require a deposit to be place to hold it/them, til completey weaned.
Deposits are made to 'hold your place' on waiting list for the gliders of your choosing, (colors, sexes, etc.), to become of age for adoption as well as placing a 'hold' on the next available gliders of your desired color & sex. It 'reserves' those joeys and assures the joeys have a qualified home when weaned.
All deposits are non-refundable. This is a standard practice among breeders; thus the meaning of the word 'deposit'.
Sugar Glider prices vary for many reasons. Rarity in birth as well as color, both play a hugh part, as with the leucistic's , cremino's, mosaics, platinum ,etc...
* 'Generations', can play a hugh part in pricing with White Faced and White Face Blondes.
* Then you get into heterozygous= Hets
* Percentages also play a large part of the pricing
* Breeding and non-breeding will also need consideration
Education is a valuable resource that should be expected from your breeder.
Since you really don't know what questions need to be asked (until you have your joey home), will the breeder be available both before AND after the adoption?
CONSIDER: Collecting money for an animal, is easy. How much time does the breeder "happily" spend with you BEFORE the adoption? We have found, 15 to 20 mins. on the phone is the most usual, IF they are willing to give any advise at all.
Personally, I DO NOT want to deal with a person who is not willing to actually 'talk' to me. Nor do I want to be 'told' thru texting, about the glider OR the breeder. Looking from both sides: Breeder or buyer- I NEED eye to eye contact. I need to HEAR the concern in a person's voice. There are just to many things to know and to many things to consider, to do an adoption thru email/texting!
MAKE THE "BREEDER", EARN THEIR MONEY.
After all, the gliders are the ones doing all 'the work".
But at the same time you should also be considerate of the breeders time.
It is frowned upon (and not in good taste), to take up 'hours' of a breeders valuable time when you go elsewhere to purchase; simply because you can "get one faster".
Remember, breeders DO talk and bad news travels faster than good!
AND BE ON TIME!
GLIDER PRICES WILL RANGE EASILY FROM: FREE TO $5500.00
EXAMPLE: CRAIGS LIST -FREE TO $800.00
REASON: After all, That's what 'THEY' paid for them from 'THE MALL'.
But they are wild, never being touched by a human hand, they bite, to old, or worse, NOT WEANED yet. Can easily have parasite and may NEVER tame down, that is "IF" they actually live! So scared of people they run all over cage or won't even come out of their pouch.
A REAL BREEDER WOULD NEVER ALLOW THE GLIDERS "THAT THEY BRED", TO END UP ON CRAIGS LIST!
A non-refundable deposit, of only 1/3 of cost of gliders will hold joeys til weaned!
Every Colored gliders such as:
Leucistics , Creminos, mosaics, platinum's etc. and all hets, will require a cage mate to go with it . We will provide a less expensive cage mate if they are sold on a pet only contract.....No glider should ever be sold (or kept), singly!
RESERVE YOUR JOEY NOW!
(They REALLY do go before mom has a chance to even name them)!
My "STANDARDS/CLASSIC GRAYS" are defined as:
A Joey from Cinnamon &/or Butter Cream &/or standard gray parents,
OR a joey from:
a 2nd generation White Face Blonde & standard gray parent,
that have bars under their ears; are considered to us, as STANDARDS!
Just call with your name, number & deposit
to be added to our Waiting List!
You Get: 1st notification... with no obligation.
If color/sex, you want is not available at the time, you can ask to be notified in case prior adoption fails. such as perspective parents not prepared or educated enough, or adoption fails for any reason.
♥ We notify you when your hearts desire, is available to go to it's FOREVER home.♥
This may seem pretty timely to you while waiting, but remember, they only have 2 births a year Plus we can not tell the mommies what we are waiting for. So if you are not willing to wait for your babies, a MILL BRED glider as those from the mall or a person who can "get you one", is the only place you will get "A GLIDER TO GO". We don't mass produce!
If a deposit is placed on Next Available - you have the right to except the joey or wait til next, until you get exactly what you want!
AFTER ALL: " HAPPY PARENTS mean HAPPY BABIES"
We will get you educated & ready so you know everything about your baby, and you are ready to welcome it home, with open & prepared arms!
WE DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE,
FOR THE BEST INTEREST OF THE SUGGIES -FIRST!
Call us to setup your appointment to place your deposit and hold some babies,
to get the 'feel' of the wee ones....(with no ...'HANDLING" fees)
But Please be considerate and respectful, Be on time and do not take up a breeders time with no intentions to adopt from them. I spend many hours educating my new glider parents as well as ensuring tame & healthy babies. After all, is that not what a breeder 'should' do, especially after spending so much time in taming the joeys?
FOR THE GOOD OF THE BREEDER:
If they are nice enough to allow you to come to their home, spend time educating you & showing the proper care, show appreciation of their time,... BE ON TIME!
