Are there sugar gliders in Malaysia?
They are native to Australia, New Guinea, and the Bismarck Archipelago. They have been introduced to Tasmania and Indonesia.
Any gliders in Malasia have been imported as exotic pets, mostly from Indonesia. They are on Malasia's protected animal list so they can be tracked as exotic imports.
Sugar bears are actually sugar gliders. Female sugar gliders have a pouch, whereas male sugar gliders do not. Male sugar gliders have "poms", whereas female sugar gliders do not. Also, the male sugar glider, if unneutered, will develop a bald spot upon his head, whereas the female sugar glider does not develop a bald spot.
There are no other names for sugar gliders. There are, however, five other varieties of glider which are related to sugar gliders. These include the Feathertail glider, Mahogany glider, Greater glider, Yellow-bellied glider and Squirrel glider. People have made up names for sugar gliders such as "sugar babies" and "honey gliders", but these and other similar names are not legitimate names for sugar gliders.
No, but I would not recommend sugar gliders as a pet for a pregnant woman, if the woman is new to sugar gliders. The reason is that sugar gliders are very high maintenance pets -- and of course babies are very high maintenance. I would recommend that the pregnant woman adjust first to being a new mom before she dives into owning sugar gliders.
