Hello, everyone! I'm new here and am hoping to rake up as much info as I can before I get my new gliders soon. I'm in the process of buying all of the supplies and have a few questions (...even after days of research ha)

1.) Has anyone tried Exotic Nutrition's Instant HPW? I was thinking about using that in part of my gliders' diets.

2.) Is there a risk factor with feeding glider too much of a certain mineral other than obesity? For example, will my gliders get sick if they receive too much protein or calcium in their diet?

3.) Are the temperments of males and females generally different? I'm getting two but don't know whether to get two neutered males or two females?

4.) Last thing...(for now ) is there a time limit you'd recommend for bonding? I'm home all day, so I'd be able to carry them in a bra pouch as long as possible. Will it bother them if they're with me for hours at a time?

Sorry that I have so many questions... just hoping to get some answers and hear any advise you might have! Thanks

To answer a few of your questions:

When it comes to minerals, you definitely should take care for that and make sure you are feeding them the right amount each day. Too much, especially over a certain period of time, can make them sick (or not enough minerals)

You should also be switching up the treats and fruit/veggies that you give them. Certain foods have different minerals, and too much of anything can be harmful (which is the same for humans too, haha). Switching things up can give them a well rounded diet, but some gliders are picky eaters for certain foods so I sometimes have to get created. Make sure to research which foods are safe for them too becuase there are a bit that are not!

To answer your last question, I recommend bonding as much as you can, so long as you are not disrupting their sleep. They should be sleeping all day, and awake at night. I keep them in a pouch sometimes all day under my shirt or in my bra while I'm working from home. I try to put them away when I am moving around so they can sleep, but the more you have them with you in a pouch, the better you will bond.

Good luck!!

Ok, makes perfect sense ha. And I'm sitting at my desk all day so I'm glad to know I can bond with them for a good amount of time. Thanks!
