me and my wife go to pet store, she feeds the glider a treat, it takes the treat
and gets a taste of her finger bone. she took it like a champion, I would have
cried. so this brings me to point 2.
point 2. about 5+ years now, started with 2 gliders, went to 15, now settled
at a 6 glider colony. I don't think I have ever bleed from a bite. I have gotten
a few hard pinches, some gliders have never bit me. link would ride my arm to refrig.
for live mealworm snack. he loves them, if he finish one and I didn't get another
one fast enough for a few days he would give me a nice pinch on the arm, no blood,
to say, feed me faster! sometimes a glider will smell food on your hand and test
with a small bite, nothing to big or hurtful. scarface does not like humans, she will come for treat then leave to eat, in pouch she will crab at me, and when I pet
her if I put my finger in front of her mouth she will touch her teeth gently to my
skin, like saying "just leave me alone, even if I know you wont hurt me."
gizmo was in ball pit, I grabbed it fast, scared him, he gave me a good bite, no blood.
if with gliders and no socks they will start to lick my feet, very bad tickle, then usually taste with a good nip to taste, on sensitive feet its a wow, "STOP THAT DUDE"
A scared glider crabs, his next defense is bite, if really scared its bite hard. so I dont put my finger in front of a scared gliders mouth, so I don't get blood bites. but they can bite, nip, taste, taste nip etc. from very hard to very soft.
the hard bites can be avoided, just know how scared that glider is.
