In Reply to: WHATS BEST 4 MY LITTLE GIRL??? PLEASE HELP!!! posted by Kristin on January 20, 1999 at 15:23:16:

: I have 1 female glider who is a little over a year old. Her brother (from birth) died around 6 months ago because he got pneumonia (when he was still with the mother) and his lungs never developed right. After a half a year and TONS of heartache over his untimely death I am ready to get another glider, so my little girl can have a new friend. A friend I know just had 2 little girls and thats what I wanted was a girl. They will be ready to go home in about another 3 weeks or so. My main question is that I would really like to get both girls but will they only bond to each other and leave my other girl out of things? Would it be better to take one home and get her use to everything and pick the other one up in another week or so. Or should I just get one? Your options mean alot to me so please respond and thank you SO much for taking the time to read my post.

: Thanks 4 any help,

If you want both girls then get them both. They will eventually bond to her and to you as well, and they can take comfort with each other as they adjust to their new home. In the wild these animals live in colonies of 12 to 15 animals and they all bond so you don't have to worry about a glider bonding to only one person or only one glider. One bond may be stronger than another but they are capable of bonding with many.
