: Im still not sure if I am going to get a glider (as much as I want one) I hear so many negative things about them. I have been told that they die rather eaily. If i do get one I am planning to build a cage that is 5x5' and 5 1/2' tall. I hope that they will enjoy something that size. Now the thing I wanted to ask is if any of you knew what makes better companion pets for just one person....Flying squirrels or
: Gliders... There is close to no information on FS's as pets but I know a breeder north of where I live. Oh and thanks to everyone thats been responding to my rather long questions. I need as much info as I can get.

If you are really looking for a companion pet, I would suggest a female baby glider that has been HAND RAISED and attended to. I started touching my baby glider way early and the results are VERY good now that she is an adult.
