1. Critterlove.com www.critterlove.com/salad-mixtures.html
has 4 salad mixes that provide a good nutritional diet. Plus they need some protein, with critterlove that is with the critterlove/HPW mix. A different one is BML diet.
You could temporary give some hard boiled egg or chicken, but dont remember chicken way to cook, either boiled or broached?
canned food tends to have sugar and salt added...BAD over time.
2. Your glider will be fine alone, would he be happier with a friend.. sure, but many owners have one glider that do fine. we rescued connor after his cagemate had passed and owners gave up on him. He is vet approved healthy, active, and slowly getting friendly.
- most gliders love to run in a wheel, glider safe wheel is important.
- treats placed around cage in forage cups make him explore to find food.
3. I think your glider can become friendly over time, but TIME is the key, you need to do your part to try and be bonded, and you need to give him time to (most likely) slowly bond to you....it will probably take MONTHS!!!
to start. dont feel like you need to pet him or grab him, just feed him treats with a spoon so he doesn't need to bite you, work to where you can feed him a treat with your fingers without getting bite, sometimes make him come towards you for the treat. later see if you can feed him a treat and just leave your hand next to him without even touching him, he should sniff your scent and eat his treat.
he will crab and crab and crab... that is ok, its what he does like a dog barking... someday he may stop..but for your gliders that is far away.
4. glider shouldn't get wet, they NEED their body heat. I would take a towel or paper towel, wet it with warm water, then try to squeeze out as much water as possible...with slightly damp towel wipe him off some, you dont need to get him clean all in one try, dont use baby wipes or chemicals. He should start cleaning himself if he has a clean cage and pouch.
