I've had issues with a few gliders, very stubborn some of them, very scared
of humans no matter how much you try.
I will say this, live mealworms, or even dried ones can really help.
I have one now, scarface, she just runs and hates being held. but for a tasty
live mealworm she will come all the way to the edge of the cage, get close
as she has to and even put a few feet on my hands to get the live mealworms.
but it is a slow process, I make sure to shake the plastic container, so the
gliders know the sounds of treat time and come running. then always see how
far you can push them to get closer to you or your hand.
As for nail cutting, I use a fleece towel (blanket) and just hold them
tight. (you can hold them tight but in a way not to hurt them.) I also have two
people cutting nails, me the holder and my wife the cutter. I put one hand
around head and put my other hands palm to the butt, so they can't reverse out.
then hold the nails out to be cut by my wife.
