Subject: mean glider

I just got two gliders on wednesday evening. One of them is friendly and i have already had him out of the cage. the other one is a bit on the mean side. I had them both eating out of my hand through the cage bars and both were getting used to me and would not crab at me hardly at all.
but this morning i saw the mean one eating some seed, so i went and got him a little dish of yogurt. When i put the dish down in the cage, he watched my hand, then suddenly came flying at it, making a crabbing noise. Luckily i got my hand out of there quickly and he wasnt able to get me. \
i didn't know i could move so fast. then he started eating the yogurt like nothing happened. I was wondering if anyone has some advice on a good way to tame them and any other suggestions on making them friendly and happy.
