1. I agree with first reply, give glider some time and space.
2. to grab the glider if possible.
make a fist (harder for them to bite) come in LOWER then their head.
give your glider a chance to sniff your hand. After some time has passed, if she is not trying to bite you, see if you can get her to step on your hand for a treat.... yogurt drops good, dried mealworms better, live mealworms best! But have live mealworm on small plate or cap. gliders can get so excited about live mealworms they can grab so fast and get your finger.
3. Keep up trying to get glider to get on your fist or arm (with it lower then your gliders head) with a treat in front of them. Even then some gliders are REAL resistant to get on our arm/hand, specially with bare skin.
2. to grab the glider if possible. ... I meant to say. "don't grab the glider if possible."
also.. we take sleeping pouch with sleeping glider (new ones) into bathroom (glider safe) and let them out of pouch to run around us..without us grabbing at all.. maybe a quick pet if they are ok with it. Let them run around room for awhile run on us if they like. let them be, let them explore. after 30 to 60 minutes show them pouch, with usually get RIGHT back in it, then carry back to cage.
I grab some gliders, I let some walk on me by themselves, other are still not bonded yet.
gizmo, sophie, gus I grab. Link, jasmine, riggs, I let walk on me. Mary, scarface and pig pen still need work with bonding.
