I have two questions...first, with the insects, should i give them to my gliders living or dead? Secondly...i have calcium, can that take the place of recal Calcium? And where do i find repcal Herptivite, my petstore does not have it. Lastly, i have glideraid, how often should that be given to my glider? Or can i mix it in with leadbeaters, and if so, how much? Ok...so it was a little more than two questions...sorry...and thanks for ur help!

As far as the bugs go my guys like them living (sic,I know) and they wont eat the frozen ones unless thats all Iv tried to give them for a few days. If you dont want to deal with the live ones introduce the frozen ones first if they like them stay with it.If the live ones dont bother you feed them those. You can put the live ones (crickets) in a toilet paper roll and stuff both ends with plain paper towel. The crickets jump around in the roll and my guys think its a really fun "toy" with a nummy payoff! As far as the calcium, Im not sure a people drug is a good idea but hey Ive been wrong before! And the glideraid is something that I only use as e treat. I wouldnt add it to the leadbeaters. Hope this helps Merry X_MAS Kimi

I suggest you feed live insects. They're cheaper, guaranteed to be fresh, probably have more vitamins, and give the gliders the thrill of practicing their predatorial instincts. It's actually quite amusing to take a large storage box, drop in 1/2 dozen crickets and a sugar glider. They actually POUNCE on the crickets...of course it takes a little practice. It's more fun to watch than TV!
You should only use RepCal. It is one of the few supplements out there that adequently provides them with Calcium and Vitamin D. It also has no phosphates which are known to prevent an animal from adequately processing their calcium. Jurassic Snacks sells it, and they also sell bulk mealworms (a must). www.jurassicsnacks.com
I only try to use glideraid as a treat. From what I've heard it's the same as Lori Nectar, but more expensive. Both Lori Nectar and Glideraid have an abundance of vitamins and calcium, but they also have an abundance of calories and gliders who eat too much can get FAT.
Don't add it to the leadbeaters. You don't want too many calories and too much vitamins can also be a bad thing, too. Just follow the recipe on Bourbon's webpage.

lol, crickets and gliders sound cute! Thank you guys so much, I just want to make sure they get everything they need to stay healthy. I'm still having problems getting the repcal (the calcium i talked about isn't for humans, it has vitamins and electrolytes in it needed for gliders) but i have gone to every petstore close to me to order the repcal....they have a habit of taking their time ordering things. Thanks
