I have never blown in my gliders face, not sure if it will work or not.
If one of my gliders starts to groom hard or bite some, I will push him gently
My gliders live in a 10 by 15 bedroom made glider safe, they run free in the
room all the time, only 1 out of 6 is still timid. and riggs has only gotten
more bonded and less timid. when I go into the room I have 3 gliders jumping on
my back and running up and down my arms, they go with me and the food to the
cage to eat. so I don't feel free roaming would be a problem.
I feel more strongly he is trying to be your alpha, as you are now his colony.
plus a few months is a short time, he may be wanting a treat, or smell something
tasty on your hand.
AS for single gliders, the information I have read, yes gliders do best in a
colony, and many like that better, how they normally choose to live. BUT many have
single gliders, I have even read that a big breeder from another site that has many gliders spent much time over and over to put a male with her lone female, only to
have the female reject them all (and this person has a long history with gliders)
so her female live happily alone.
We have added gliders together 6 or 7 times, all successful. but this last time
we tried adding 2 to our 6. and the alpha male of the 6 would not allow the two
in, after 2 tries it was clear he was not going to let his colony be increased.
and we did scent training for about 2 to 3 months.
having protection on your hand is a good idea until you feel he won't bite.
washing hands before you handle him. give him more time to get used to you.
pet him during day in pouch, see what he does.
