1 bonding, is trusting, it can take time with these little guys, be PATIENT.
each one bonds in different times.
2 I use midwest double critternation, also petsmart available. no center
divider and bottom poop tray modified to outside bottom of cage. I much
prefer this cage, congo, madagascar, brisbane good.
3 I say just get big cage, use treats to help train. with a good live
mealworm even unbonded gliders will come visit you for a treat.
4 diet, OHPW or critterlove (same) or BML seem most popular and healthy.
video on youtube shows how easy to make OHPW. critterlove I think the same
way to make. I dont recommend instant critterlove, my gliders loved the non
instant much better, all of them.
5 handle your gliders in a glider safe area so they can NOT run away and hide.
closet, empty room etc. use caution in a bathroom, glider don't swim. once
bonded they will stay with you or not run and hide.
DONT introduce your gliders to other animals, dont use heat rock, dont use a
gliders are nocturnal, are you, if you sleep at night, maybe you should get
a cat. I spent 1 to 2 hours with my gliders on my 4 days off between 11pm and 3am. After about 1 hour they leave me to take a nap.
