I would like a ferret or a iguana one day.
JustLikeHeaven -- how old is your son??
Sugar gliders are really not good pets for children; they're fragile, make a loud noise that can scare kids, and they're nocturnal. Mine don't even wake up until around 8pm at night, at then they're back asleep by 7am.
If you do decide to get a sugar glider, make sure you get two.
They don't do well on their own at all.
