Hi Sadie,
Have you tried changing the type of dish their food is in and just giving them that type of dish empty to sleep in? I don't know what you feed them, but for NutriGlider or soft stuff, you could give it to them in a bird tube for awhile...
I give my glider her food on a saucer...I wonder if yours would lay in that?

Let us know what happens - I'm curious.

: Hi gliders consistanly sleep in their food dishes. I had a big one, where they both fit comfortably, unfortunately. So, I got a smaller one where they WOULDN'T fit, but in the morning, I checked on them and they stacked themselves on it! How can I stop this? They do have a nice nesting box, and a dish of their own to sleep in, but I guess they find their food comforting. When they wake, they are all gross and sticky... Im afraid they are going to get in trouble with fruit flies too. I don't want to put my little ones in a jar with saran wrap over it to attract and kill the flies :o If anyone can help, I would really appreciate it. THank you!
