interesting thing about how gliders eat, mine will "spit" out her food in triangle pieces but its not really spitting, she will suck out all she needs and discard the rest.

This is such an interesting thread and I have learned so much! Hi...my name is Margie and I live in N.Florida about 50 miles from Tallahassee. Last Dec. I was blessed with my first glider who had been knocked out of a cats mouth and looked seriously D.O.A. Our neighbors had a colony that lived off of seeds and were just left to breed. I kept him in a small inclosure with magnets on the top, fed him baby food for the first week and washed him off under running tap water to clean him. THEN...I got online and researched and took a crash course on these facinating little entities and fell hopelessly in love! Long story shortened...he lived and now, eight months later, he uses his hind legs again, unless he is in a hurry, and is able to glide in his cage. Shocked by his diet, I now use the BLM with added fruits and veggies on the side. He also has his own room and an eight by six cage. So, about a month ago, same neighbor finally tired of her gliders and they were brought to my house. There are two females, one with an in pouch baby and a male. Bless their hearts, the first night when I fed them, they thought they were in Glider Heaven! I absolutely MUST get my guys "fixed" and turn OFF the inbreeding machine! I also know that this group of critters will probably have health issues all their lives. I can't seem to find an Exotic vet in my area. I sure would appriciate you Ladies help with this! I have learned so much from all of you and am glad to have found this group.

Welcome- my suggestion to you would be to copy and past this post into the welcome section for newbies...I think more people will read it there. You are such a wonderful person for saving all those glider sand taking on others responsibilities. Glad to hear they "LOVE" their new diet!

It has two large window and is large enough she can climb all over the inside without hurting herself. You wear it on the front like a baby carrier and one of the windows is on the top so she climbs up and talks to me while she's playing. It is made of polar fleece with a padded bottom. She loves it and will play with her toys inside.
I highly recommend the blended diet, most of the stuff can be bought at local store or health store. http://www.gliderkids.com/BlendedGliderDietWeb.pdf

I have also tried priscilla's and there a few other listed here... http://glidergeek.weebly.com/diet.html

I am glad you are helping her:)

The Glider Geek site jeremylexy posted above is mine (as shown in my signature) and I've listed two more diets on there, today as a matter of fact, including Candy's Blended diet, which is at the Glider Kids site also posted above.

CiaAndZitasMom I'm sorry but that just is not true. I've been feeding grapes to my gliders for over 12 years. My 13+ old LOVES them as do all the others here.

YES, grapes may be harmful to other animals but there has not been any indication what so ever that they harm gliders.

Dancing: Every site I have read said that grape skins are bad for Sugar Gliders. Now I understand that you have been feeding your gliders grapes for some time now, but I am not ready to take that leap of faith that they are okay untill it is 100% proven. Thanks anyways! Have a great holiday!

Your choice.

But you should offer the links to those websites that suggest they are bad for GLIDERS but don't go saying they are bad if you don't have PROOF. There are those of us with YEARS of experience and those of us who have cared for HUNDREDS of gliders over the years that have that experience to offer as proof.

There are also a lot of "bunk" sites out there full of bad info.

Dancing: Hey, I too have cared for my share of gliders so don't go pushing that around like its some kind of trophy. Look I am not trying to start stuff. You have your opinions I have mine. We both have our own proof and experience. But untill they have a proven 100% diet then I think its best you do your thing and I will do mine. I am sure you are doing the best for your babies and I am doing the same for mine. Why can't you just let it drop and have a good holiday?
