: I have one pair of gliders that have not yet reached sexual maturity. I have a few questions that I would appreciate anyone's reply to:

: 1) Are all litters the same sex, or can there be, for example, one male and one female?
their can be a male and a female in a litter, that was kim's gliders last litter was.

: 2) The female has four teats, correct?
I'm not sure about this one, I can't hold wickit still long enough to look inside.

: 3) When the male gets his bald spot, does that mean that he's sexually mature?
No, Kim's glider had 2 sets of joey's before he got his bold spots.

: 4) My male is a few months (four, to be exact) older than my female. Will he "pursue her", even though she is not old enough?
Because he's older I'm almost positive he will persue her more. She'll probably fight back if she's not ready. Just watch them.

: 5) Do you have any other breeding suggestions/factiods that you would share with me?

: Thank you, in advance, for your help.
