The two sugar gliders are not eating

 The two sugar gliders are not eating

The animals have yet to eat or drink anything. I have successfully fed the male apple, but the female just doesnt want anything. I dipped the apple in water and the male licked it and ate it to his content, and I was able to get the female to drink just a little bit. I think I am going to run to the store and get some low-fat high-protein cat food. Phil told me that was their main staple. He didnt like to feed his animals live proteins. The female seems very fearful of being handled. She even bit me today a couple times when I tried to get her used to being handled (it didnt hurt). Once she is being held though, she accepts it. It is very hard to hold her steady. She just keeps on running from hand to hand and jumps at anything that looks like it will hold her. The male on the other hand is fearful of jumping and will only go half a foot. I think he is the younger one.
