: I've had my 5 month old glider for 5 weeks now. He does not want to bond.
: I take him out of the cage every night, but all he wants to do is
: bite and jump away from me. If I hold him against me he will cry, then
: settle down, but the minute there is a chance he will jump and
: run for his life. He Also does not eat from my hand anymore.

: What do you think the problem is? What should I do? Do you think
: he will bond?

: Thank you for your help.

I have had my sugar glider for six weeks and we still have not bonded. I try things like feeding her from my hand but she just bites the crap out of me! the man i bought her from told me it was my fault that she wont bond, but i did everything right. I now let her sleep in my hands and i pet her ears. she doesent fuss as much and she only bites when i scare her by fast movements.
