They made it through the night without any injuries or crabbing. I'm happy for that but, there was a lot of short hissing. Most of it was about the wheel. Now they are both sleeping again and quiet in the same pouch. How do I know if they like being together?

If you gave them two pouches so they had the option to separate if they wanted to do so and are in the same pouch sleeping peacefully, then it I would score that a win :thumb2:

The short hissing you heard off and on was more than likely their just getting settled in the pouch with someone or both getting a foot in the face rofl

They will work out the wheel between them. More than likely they will figure out how to use it together agree

I agree with Karen. The hissing isn't necessarily a bad thing. As you become more familiar with your gliders' noises, body languages, you will be able to tell the difference between the good and not so good.

Mine went through a stage where they were deciding who was boss. When it came down to it, Dot is the boss because Fiona says she is. Fiona is smaller than Dot, but she can be feisty and have her way. And from recent personal experience, Fiona is a force to be reckoned with. Dot is a push over unless provoked. dunno Go figure!

Belle thinks the wheel is a group activity, Xena is pretty sure it's not.

sounds good to me. Yes they'll have to work out some stuff, but sounds good so far.

My little Ollie boy (he's smaller than the girls) gets fussy over food, but they'll eat together sometimes without bickering.
