Scott, can i also suggest not feeding your glider any canned fruit, during the canning
process, the fruit is cooked at high temps, causing most of the vitamins and minerals
gliders need, to be cooked out...thus making it pointless for her to eat.
Also too, gliders are nocturnal, and in the wild, mostly eat at night..so you might be best to
feed her at night, and maybe substitute her cricket for something smaller,like a rasin,
if you still want to wake her to give her a treat. Plus also remembers she's still a baby, and
wont eat a large amount like a adult would in one sitting. Also if your continuing on giving her treats
during the day..letting her lick juice/leadbeaters off your finger during the day, she wont feel
that hungry by night, I use to do this with my glider when I first brought him home, and the same thing
happened. So by all means if you want to, still give him treats, but maybe cut back a little, and as bourbon said
the leadbeaters is the most important part of her diet.
