Stop Selling Exotic Pets in Mall Kiosks!

In malls nationwide, kiosks are selling tiny, exotic marsupials called sugar gliders. Because of the kiosks' locations in malls and the species' cute appearance, shoppers purchase the animals on impulse like toys, oblivious to their special, long-term needs.

Sugar gliders are playful, nocturnal mammals native to Australia, where they live communally with up to 30 family members. In the U.S., most sugar gliders will live all by themselves in desolate, unfamiliar cages.

Their natural diet consists of native insects, wattle gum and eucalyptus sap, which U.S. shoppers rarely have access to.

Sugar gliders deserve to live in their native habitat, where they can glide, play with their family members and search for food. Shoppers do not need these pets and typically grow bored with them shortly after purchase. Please sign the petition to convince U.S. Congress to outlaw the sale of sugar gliders at malls.
We, the undersigned, are disappointed with your decision to vend exotic sugar gliders at your mall kiosks. Because of the kiosks' locations in malls and the species' cute appearance, shoppers purchase the animals on impulse like toys, oblivious to their special, long-term needs.

Sugar gliders are playful, nocturnal mammals native to Australia, New Guinea and Tasmania, where they live communally with up to 30 family members. Their natural diet consists of native insects, wattle gum and eucalyptus sap, which U.S. shoppers rarely have access to. Like all companion animals, sugar gliders require veterinary care, but most vets are unfamiliar with this exotic species.

Sugar gliders deserve to live in their native habitat, where they can carry out their natural instincts to glide, play with their family members and search for food. Shoppers do not need these pets and typically grow bored with them shortly after purchase. Please outlaw the sale of sugar gliders or any live animals in U.S. mall stores and kiosks. Thank you for taking the time to read and consider our petition.
