>.< rita has had gliders/been a member of this forum for a long time i think she knows what she is talking about and knows about that info you gave. just because they eat something they are not supposed to doesnt just mean they are missing something in their diet. they are being curious,foraging, and are like children who want something they cant have. the quote from rita's post says "There is also small particles the gliders can inhale." even if you say its not true there are tons of people in the glider community who say its bad, so i just avoid using it there are plenty of other things to use on the bottom of the cage and avoid the one that can harm them. i just avoid the whole thing by using nothing on the bottom of the cage. using a glider kitchen also cuts down on the mess.
that link went to a page with to many words to read and for some reason my eyes did not like that page lol XD not enough sleep i guess. unless the study was done on gliders im going to partly ignore it since its always better to be safe then sorry.
