Foraging for food, especially treats, is an important sugar glider
activity that encourages physical activity and mental stimulation. Foraging toys keep
those inquisitive gliders active
and offer a marvelous way to peak the natural curiosity of
gliders. Just like Winnie the Pooh, sugar gliders LOVE to discover their
own little pot 'o gold has a sweet little
sumptin' tucked inside.
The "cup" of this cute
little toy is the natural shell of a fruit from the bael tree, used in traditional medicine and as a food throughout
India. The plastic 6 knob star on the top of the cup - the "lid" -
is made from BPA-free plastic. This lid is the secret to the puzzle. You see, this lid
the right size so it does not completely cover the top of the cup.
a space between each knob that's just big enough for a little nose to
smell what's in the cup, and a little hand to sneak into the cup and
grab around. But, when the forager tries to lift the star to get
at the treat, this tilts the toy and the treat rolls to the other side
of the cup.
You can probably see how this simple idea could lead to hours of
sugar glider ingenuity on display!
Your job is to "sweeten the pot" by sneakily placing a papaya
treat - or maybe two - into the cup Then sit back to enjoy the
show. No need to turn on the television because you'll be
dazzled watching your gliders playing a game of "Foraging With the Stars"...
Sugar gliders are thrilled to discover there can be something tucked
inside their private little cup. Once they
figure it out, they will start to make a habit of going back to
check it out on a regular basis!
Foraging cup is just over 9" long from top of clip to bottom of
bell. The "stack" of cup and star is just under 3" high.
All metal parts are glider safe and have been tested to be free of zinc
plating. The star, available in several colors (see picture at
left), is BPA-free plastic. And no worries about the bell being
too loud - these cute little bells provide a muted jingly tone that
won't drive a poor ole human up the wall!
The Foraging Cup is a cute, simple design that
provides loads of entertainment for the whole
family. And what a fantastic price, huh?
