But still I have questions before I put a life in danger of neglect or stress by having to relocate
Wild glider live half as long as captive gliders, they can suffer from starvation and predators. If you can provide a decent setup, good food, large cage, friendship your glider will live happily twice as long as a wild glider.
DIET PRICE - I use OHPW. If you have 2 gliders. a few bags of frozen veggies is like $2 a bag or $6. these large bags will last 2 gliders atleast a month. a 3 lb bag of apples plus pears plus papaya about $15 will last 2 gliders awhile, we cut up in cubes and freeze. We get beats, kale, watercrest? cut up for maybe 8-10 dollars and again lasts a long time So you are $31 dollars. (so far you are way under my dog food bill for 3 dogs at $35 a bag.)
For OHPW I buy bulk for 12 gliders, this setup would last you over a year in most cases. Wombaroo 1kg - $50 (ALOT of womb.) 1 gallon raw honey $40, container bee pollen $8, and 3 eggs per liter 30 cent? so about $100 for the year. You might need 2 gallons of honey for a year. I mix for 12 gliders so I use lots more honey. I think your cost for 2 gliders would be about $20 a month.
500 mealworms are either $12 at petsmart or $8 at other pet store. with 2 gliders you can get 50/100 live mealworms maybe $4.
dried mealworms, gliders still love these and they last forever almost, kaytee brand large bag like $12 or less. petsmart more expensive.
My dogs are beagle, she would kill if we arent home and gliders get out of cage, and 2 german shepherds this type dog loves to hunt down animals and kill. a few have gotten in our back yard and I was a few seconds to late to save rabbit.
So with my dogs they know gliders off limits, to dangerous even if we are there, one BIG shepherd paw and 1 second would be bad. Whenever a glider starts to jump off me, I look at dog and he goes into the corner.
I buy pet-pro Happy glider cereal, think its the same that pocket pet sells, but MUCH cheaper. I freeze it, put small amount in cage every 3 days change to new, and they eat a few, I have read it is good for teeth cleaning.
Its hard for me to smell the gliders unless I get close to the cage, 2 feet. or if its time for cleaning 3-4 feet away, but only strong close up if needs cleaning.
Sophie was a loving glider the day we picked her up from rehoming, she was not a baby and loves all humans. Gizmo sometimes gives me a small (no blood) nip if I try to take him out of my wife's bra, but will come to me no nips on his own, or from the cage. Gus is like sophie, very friendly. basically, our gliders tend to treat all humans the same, friendly or nervous or scared.
