: : 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.
you can try putting on a t-shirt and put on a long sleeved shirt over that. put the glider between the two shirts. Carry him around this way everyday for as long as you can. I take my glider,Mango, to college with me every day this way. When I first started taking him with me, he used to bite the tar out of me. Now he is much easier to handle and begs for me to take him out of the cage, especially in the mornings when I am going to school.
