Does my glider like me?

 Does my glider like me?

Hi guys first off I just wanted to say that this site is an absolute lifesaver especially because I'm from South Africa where sugar gliders aren't super popular as pets yet! I just wanted to give a bit of background on my situation and if anyone would like to give me their opinion that would be great! So I have had Axl for about a month and a half and he's two years old. At the moment I can hold him in my hand and he's pretty chilled and spends most of his time sleeping on my shoulder in my jersey and goes everywhere with me :) with regards to crabbing he has probably only done it about 5 times and they have all been when my other pets have come too close. He does however nip me often but then releases straight away and it's not sore or anything but was just wondering if that's him being friendly or something else?

I am NOT a sugar glider expert at all but I have been doing a little bit of research and it seems that if your glider is laying on your shoulder that is a very good sign. As for the nipping, it could just be grooming you if it is not breaking through the skin. This is similar to dog behavior because they dont lick to groom themselves, they nip that area. Gliders might not be exactly like dogs but in this case their behavior could be similar, and overall your glider seems pretty bonded to you!
