When I first got gliders, I figured the good cat food should be healthy for
them. But everything I have read says that cat food is formulated for cats.
so its not everything gliders need.
I give gliders OHPW and that has the protein they need. I would keep
trying live or dried mealworms, I have had gliders that are a little slow to
bite one, but once they do, they go crazy for them. I have even rescued a few
the owners said wouldn't eat mealies. But a few weeks later, they are all over
them. If someone has the stomach for it, break a live one in half and let them
have a try.
In the end, the right diet, OHPW or BML has the protein in it they need. so
you don't need to worry about mealies, meats, eggs except as a treat.
