I was reading through the archieves at one of my southern flying squirrel message boards and someone was talking about how pans coated with Teflon, if overheated, can burn and emit dangerous fumes that can potentially kill birds and other small animals. This article was referenced in the post:

USA Today: Teflon Pans Create a Sticky Situation when overheated

Since gliders have a very acute sense of smell and are affected by many of the things that birds are effected by, I thought this was very interesting.

If you want to know what a person is like, watch how he treats others.

You'll never know what the outcome is if you don't step up and try.

Thanks for sharing that Katie. As a long time parrot owner, I have never used Teflon coated products. My vet was actually the one who gave me the original warning. Guess it had been mentioned in one of the journals.

Wow, this is something I haven't heard of, but it make sense... Thanks for posting this.....

There's one part I had to laugh at though... </font><blockquote><font class="small">Quote:</font><hr />
"We're still searching for the person who has never left a pan on a stove top and had it get real hot."

<hr /></blockquote><font class="post">

I guess I need to get ahold of them and tell them to stop searching, you found me.... lol..

This is all new to me. Thank you so much for posting about this. I doubt that any of us would intentionally let things overheat, but it does happen. It's probably a good rule of thumb to not have gliders near these appliances and utensils anyway, but this is a great warning to keep in mind. I occasionally cook things that call for high heat, and use a teflon pan. I don't know that the amount of time it's cooked would reach these temperatures, but I never would have considered it a problem before reading this.
