My glider Zelda (who I recently posted about because of a dominance wound) has been making this weird sound whenever shes curious about something. Ive been trying to find a recording or description of other gliders making this sound but I havent been able to find anything. I made a video myself of Zelda who was waiting patiently for a snack while making this warbly noise.

Shes been by herself due to her bite wound still healing, but I take her out a bunch and let her socialize with her siblings under supervision. (I know shes also overgrooming because of her isolation and Im not really sure what to do to fix that aside from put her back with her sisters, which I cant do right now...but thats besides the point.)

My main question is, is this a normal glider sound? Im linking to a YouTube video I uploaded so you guys can hear what Im talking about.

Ps. Im sorry about the vertical video, I didnt film it that way and have no clue how to fix it.
 Look what I found on Ebay

doesn't sound bad, sounds kind of normal.

I have one glider that clicks he's teeth together a lot of the time, specially
when he is getting in the face of the other gliders, but none of the other gliders
we have, have ever done it.

I would say zelda is fine

Thank you! If it makes you feel better, almost all of my gliders click and chatter their teeth when in front of each other. I think its mostly a Hey, dont worry, its just me kind of deal. I appreciate you responding!

Sounds a bit like my gizmo when she gets avocado. I call it chorteling. It's when she is really content. She seems to only do it when I'm either holding her or hand feeding her. It's really sweet actually.

Thats adorable! Im glad someone else has experienced this glider noise. Zelda has been through some rough patches lately and its good to know its not because anything is wrong. She often makes that sound when I have food in my hand or right when I take her out of her cage. Maybe shes happy to see me! :-) I hope so.

Agreed with all of the above. I knew my boys were really happy with something when they'd click. Unfortunately, this usually happened out of my sight so I couldn't see what it was that made them so happy but you can just sense the happiness and contentment oozing from them when they make that sound.

I feel like I'd make that sound if I could if I got a backscratch at just the right spot ...
