The Pouch
Female's only.

Female Gliders have a ventral abdominal pouch that opens forward (located around where you think a belly button might be, or a little lower). There are 4 teats in the pouch, but most females usually only give birth to 1 or 2 babies (2 being the most common - rarely they give birth to 3). After a gestation period of 15-17 days, a female Glider will give birth to tiny embryonic offspring (about 1/4 in. in length - or about the size of a cooked grain of rice). After making the trip to the pouch, the tiny embryonic offspring will remain inside the pouch for 60-70 days, where they will continue to develop and grow. Once OOP (out of pouch, after the 60-70 days...) the joey will continue to nurse and grow untill it can safely be weaned. (It is highly recommended that a joey is weaned no sooner than 8 weeks OOP.) For more info on Joeys (Glider babies), please visit the 'Joey' page.

* The pouch should never have any discharge, or appear red or irritated, etc... if you think the pouch looks abnormal at all, or you see them messing with their pouch alot (especially if you KNOW their not pregnant/with joey), please have an experienced Vet take a look.
