I just wanted to send you an email to let you know how great your sugar glider food,
Zookeeper's Secret is! My gliders just love it. I have tried many other sugar glider
foods and they wouldn't even touch them. But when I gave them this
sugar glider food, they
couldn't get enough! And their coats are so full and healthy now, I can't believe the
difference. They are so healthy thanks to the addition of this
I'm glad that you have it and I will always purchase from you as everything is so
fresh. And thank you for being the best sugar glider breeders!
You answer any questions and are always there to help.
I recently received the glider newsletter that spoke about the different kinds of
sugar glider food available.
My gliders, Gizmo and Boo-Boo would only eat the one from Pretty Pets.
I wasn’t sure that it was what they needed, but they would not eat anything else no matter what I did.
Anyway, after reading the newsletter I was sure they needed something better.
I immediately ordered Zookeeper’s secret (along with the Swing
Thing). Today my shipment arrived and I put the sugar glider food in the bowl.
To my amazement they loved it! I feel so much better knowing that they are eating good stuff!!
I just wanted to thank you for such a great product.

SunCoast Sugar Gliders tested a wide variety of sugar glider food products based upon
vet recommendations (read a review of some of the available staple foods here).
We've used Zookeepers Secret for many years with great success, and
it's a great glider staple food.
But over the past 2 years we have
gradually switched most of our sugar gliders (including the joeys) over to Wholesome
Balance Chicken & Brown Rice Blend, the first dry sugar glider food to use animal protein as the main ingredient.
If you are new to sugar gliders, you will probably find the Wholesome Balance product
easier to feed. We like the fact there is less waste and some
simply like it better.
did we initially choose ZooKeeper's Secret more than 7 years ago?
Well, it's simple. The decision was based on the knowledge
diets using animal protein as the primary ingredient (as opposed to
vegetable protein like soy or corn) contain a better balance of
essential amino acids that would help gliders maintain health and
thrive, not just
survive. Animal proteins also mimic consumption of insects eaten in the wild.
And for many years, ZooKeeper's Secret was the only animal protein-based
diet available for sugar gliders.
tried lots of commercial brand sugar glider
food products, and the fact is, our sugar gliders didn't particularly like many of them.
We also asked our veterinarian to review the claims made by other commercial manufacturers, and she could find no
evidence supporting many of the claims made. Once we identified two "finalist" products that our
vet was comfortable with the nutritional
value of, we let the sugar gliders choose, and the rest is history.
ZooKeeper's Secret sugar glider food is formulated to satisfy sugar
glider food needs in a tasty and satisfying product. But keep in
mind, our vets and SunCoast Sugar Gliders don't recommend a diet of
just one food.
ZooKeeper's Secret staple food diet is merely intended to meet only part of the sugar glider's nutritional needs.
In addition, you will need to continue supplementing your sugar glider's
balanced meal plan with offerings of fruits and vegetable, and you still need to provide protein based food sources such as
grasshoppers, boiled chicken, and other low fat/high protein food sources.
ZooKeeper's Secret is also an excellent staple sugar glider
food to use in conjunction with Leadbeater's, BML, or popular variations
on these mainstream diet plans.
Freshness - ZooKeeper's Secret is specifically formulated for the insectivore/omnivore nature of the sugar glider.
Since we feed Zookeeper's Secret to some of our gliders, we
receive regular shipments direct from the manufacturer. When you
place a food order, we package it for you from our own food
This means you will always be getting the absolute freshest
food - and why we guarantee a shelf life of 4 months. And since we buy it in bulk quantities, you
also get a great price on this sugar glider staple food.
You won't find fancy packaging, because the quality goes into the food.
When you order your
ZooKeeper's Secret sugar glider food, we will pack it fresh for you in
re-sealable zipper bags.
Why is it important to feed sugar gliders a species specific staple
diet? In the past, many well intentioned veterinarians, breeders
and others in animal related industries recommended high quality cat
food, monkey chow, marmoset diet and other diets as acceptable for
However, in recent studies, the veterinarian
community is beginning to suspect that feeding diets that are developed
for other species causes long term health deficits in sugar
gliders. Liver, kidney and intestinal problems can develop from
using inappropriate food sources. Any of these conditions can
lead to serious health problems or worse in sugar gliders.
At SunCoast Sugar Gliders, we have noticed
significant improvement in healthier appearance of glider "droppings"
as a result of using this product. While this may not be the most
scientific approach to assessing sugar glider food value, we consider
it an important measurement of our nutritional success in caring for
our sugar glider colonies.
manufacturer of ZooKeeper's Secret has employed research and product
development techniques that have been time tested and proven in world
class zoos in the U.S. We are proud to bring this product to our
customers. This product is suitable for just-weaned joeys through
adulthood. The soft, moist, pre-cut, ready to feed product
replicates a balanced, natural diet plan for your special sugar gliders.
We suggest that you feed each sugar glider one heaping teaspoon of
ZooKeeper's Secret each evening. This staple diet should be left in the
cage for twenty four hours, and any uneaten portion discarded and replaced nightly.
The balance of your sugar gliders' diet should consist of fruit/veggie
sources and protein fed each evening with uneaten portions discarded in
the morning to prevent your gliders from eating spoiled
leftovers. For the complete diet developed by Dr.
