I am getting my new baby in the end of June.... her mom chewed her ears off. Does anyone know if she will have hearing that is normal?

I really don't think it will affect her hearing. The only thing that will be affected is that you won't be able to see when her ears are droopy. Gliders fold their ears back when they are scared, when they are sleeping to block out noise and also when they are ill.

Do you know how and when mom did this?

She was between a week and 2 weeks oop. The breeder said it was mom and dads way of saying they were done being good parents. She is having dad neutered. She is my DREAM BABY. smile I think having no ears gives her more personality. I was going to name her Radar but it sounds to masculine, so I am naming her.....Echo

I just cant wait to get her home. She will fit in perfectly here. I always have liked animals with physical abnormalitys. I think it gives them character.

I don't think you will see any noticeable effect to her hearing. I have seen a few different gliders now that were either born without or through some accident don't have the outer part of their ears and they seem to all be just fine.

I have a glider, VanGogh, that is missing an ear and several fingers. After seeing two vets, it was assumed that momma must have been an overzealous groomer. I had daddy neutered and decided to neuter VanGogh and keep him as well.

He gets around fine despite his handicap. He actually uses that hand more than I ever thought he would. I do keep extra hammocks in his cage just in case he might lose grip and fall.

His hearing is fine. He is a healthy, active glider. heart

Here he is as a young joey and you can see his hand.


Here is the missing ear as a joey. I thought it just hadn't popped out yet. I look back at it now and it seems so obvious that it's missing.


This is him at about six months old.


Here is at around one year old.


And here he is at three years old.


Good luck with Echo! I almost named my leu Echo when I got her. roflmao Great name!

I'm sure she will be just fine despite her unique appearance. mlove

He is adorable !!!! Even if she is deaf....I WILL LOVE HER. We all have our inperfections and Disabilities. I hope to make her a bra baby so she wont be spending much time alone till shes old enough and big enough to be with her older cagemates to be. This is going to be the LONGEST MONTH AND A HALF waiting for her to be old enough to come home. I CANT WAIT .

I also have a glider (Hugh) with only one ear . His colony attacked him when he was younger (he was the "runt" of a set of twins) . He doesnt like other gliders since then , but he can definately hear . In fact, hes the only glider I one hundred percent know he knows his name . I can be in their room talking to the others or my boyfriend or whatever, but as soon as I say "Hugh" he pops his little one-eared head right out .I swear I think the ear he has is extra big too =P
He'll be a happy healthy guy Im sure . Just be sure to get used to all of his mannerisms since you wont be able to tell if he has droopy ears , so keep an eye out for any unusual behaviors .

The one ear glider named VanGogh had me in stitches! What a perfect name! Love it! (I'm an art dork) and Echo is adorable! Good luck! It'll be worth it all in the end smile

This is Bella. He was attacked when he was a baby. He's rather shy but, hears very well.
