Sugar Gliders make excellent pets.  They adapt very readily to captivity 
and can develop very strong relationships with their human keepers.  They
are small in size, are very intelligent and love to play.  They are much 
smarter than a hamster or rat and have a much longer life-span, 	most 
living to be 10 or older if taken care of properly.  Although nocturnal, I 
found this to be a benefit, in that they want to play in the evening, which
is the only time I'm really home.  Most gliders, if handled well and given 
time, learn their owner(s) scent(s) and have absolutely no fear of them.   
In fact, they love human attention.  For me, the first attraction was that 
they are just darn cute.  The second was the strong bonds that they develop
with their owners.
