: I just bought a sugar glider and it's a female. The first
: night I had her she played with me and nibbled very little.
: She loved to play on my shoulder and run around. Now, she
: bites me and barks at me whenever I open her cage. Should
: I cool off of her for awhile or keep at her,nonforcefully?

Leave her alone for awhile. I have the same problem with my
little baby female glider. She started off alright, but now
she is very timid and frightened when we are around. Give her
some time without being bothered by you. After two or three
days, gently offer her a favorite food from your hand. In time,
she will understand that you are not the enemy and she will
warm up to you.
