A sugar glider in the pouch is called a joey. Joeys are born with a jaw that is not well developed. Once it latches on to a nipple, it should not be disturbed for the 8 to 9 weeks it will remain there. If it is removed beforehand, it will die as it is unable to latch on to the nipple again because of its weak jaw.
