I am so glad every glider is different lol Achoo only has nipped at me when he missed his worm or thought I was giving him some food other than that he is my love bug. Lala on the other hand she is pretty shy it is taking some work which I don't mind I just hope I am doing everything right, she likes to nip like when I reach in the pouch (without crabbing) or just anytime my fingers are in front of her, she will let me pet her occasionally and she is starting to play around me and everything I just need to know what to do about the nipping or if there is anything I tried the TSK TSK she acts like she doesn't hear me or she doesn't care??

Is there a particular time when she is nipping you? Is she only doing it when you reach out to pet her? This may sound a bit over simplified, but have you tried saying no in a stern voice?

It is just when she realizes it is my hand under her and around her as I am bringing her out of the pouch and at times when I go to pet her. I tell her no no we don't bite mommy and I try not to pull my hand back but I don't want to say it to mean and break the trust we have.

Is she just nipping or biting (hard, drawing blood)?

Well I read that Nipping and biting is the same so that is what I was going by.. I have never bled she just nips I guess but gets gradually harder. Maybe she is just testing me to see what she can get by with. Last night I had the idea that maybe I needed to have more time with her and like you put it more stern, so in tent time while Achoo was running around playing me and her just chilled I had her in my hand she likes the little piece of fleece that I cut and had my scent on so I had it in one hand and my "naked" one and she didn't crab I pet her and talked to her when she went to nip at me "when I was trying to get her out of the pouch or when she was trying to burrow down more" I took it then moved her around so she could look at me and told her that mommy doesn't like that that was a no no and then I would pet her and when she settled down I would give her a treat, it worked pretty good she acted like she wasn't in the mood to play like Achoo was so I tried putting her in my bra and she stayed there for over 15 mins occasionally she would peek her head out and looked at me and I would pet her and she would go back down it was pretty cool.

I think she's telling you she doesn't want to come out of the pouch :rofl2:

If it's when you want to have playtime, I'd try to coax her out with a treat instead of reaching in for her.

It is or was anytime I put my hand in the pouch or around her. Last night she did a lot better.
