 Chatter/hissing

Hi, I just got my first glider Monday from a friend who didn't have time for him. When I first open cage and try and get him out, he makes a loud noise. I'm guessing he's stressed. Is this typical? I've been wearing him in bonding pouch. Any other suggestions to help him adjust to his new home?

He is 1 1/2 yes old. He's been by himself all this time. But I'm considering getting him a buddy once he adjusts to new home. Good or bad idea? Thanks in advance for thoughts/recommendations!

me and my boyfriend have four gliders and they still growl and make weird noises at us when we take them out of their pouches or cages, i think its just they are surprised and being disrupted in their homes makes them uneasy talking to them and saying their names calms them down a lot it just takes time for them to stop weve had syd and lelo for about 3 months i think and they dont growl as much, only when we are waking them up.when youre holding him in the bonding pouch make sure youre talking to him and touching him enough so that he can bond better.its a great idea to get him a buddy our girls loved it when we brought two more home a week ago, they live in huge colonies and love bonding with eachother so its always a good idea to have more then one.

a buddy would be awesome for him most likely, sometimes a glider doesnt want a buddy but I think that is very rare. sounds like you need to do a lot of ready on gliders to be able to introduce 2 and bond with them, good luck.
