: We a joey who opened her eyes on March 1st. Now, by May 1st, she is FULL GROWN!
: I am amazed at the rate of growth of the babies, they sure don't stay small for very long at all.
: Now I can see how someone could be totally in the dark about the age of a new glider they get.
: The only difference between my 3 year old Precious and my 2 month old Debabie is that Debabie's coat is a little more silver and hair slightly thicker.
: The size is the SAME. Precious is a little bit smaller that Debabie's mom, maybe Debabie will grow a little more yet.
: These are not related whatsoever so the coat difference might just be a genetic thing, don't know.
: It is so hard to tell the age of a glider, all you can depend on is the seller's honesty.
Okay, this is too totally weird. My baby is 3-1/2 months old and is no bigger than a medium-sized mouse. I have heard from other sources that a glider is not fully mature until 9 months. Why the variation. Anyone know?
