I would say there is more then one way to skin a cat. so it's not that the
maker of that article is wrong with the way they do it, but to think that is the
only way to do it, that I think would be wrong.
we got gizmo and link first as babies, both are friendly and tame, but gizmo
was bonded quickly to my wife as a baby, the kids were suppose to bond with link, but never did, so after 6 months or more I started to bond with him. Other gliders
we got as rehomed, and none were young and all are much more friendly and tame now.
Riggs we got as a 1 year old, he would jump on me and then jump off and run down
the hallway. so I had to teach him to stay in the cage, we had a larger number of
gliders riggs got less friendly and more scared of us. Now I am back to colony of
6 gliders and in glider room riggs will go to my legs and curl up and sleep in my legs, I can also pick him up without nips anymore, he will stay in my crossed legs
letting me pet him until I leave the glider room.
