Hi everyone,

Just curious as to what your gliders prefer? Hammocks or sleeping pouches?

My gliders basically ignore their hammock in favor of their pouches in their cage...but the breeder from whom I got both of my little fuzz butts uses hammocks almost exclusively.

Is there any benefit going one way or the other? Or is it all personal glider preference?

My gliders sleep in their pouches. I don't use corner hammocks, my guys like square hammocks up high.

I will find them sitting on their bums in the hammock looking like a bunch of hippies sharing s doobie.

Honest they all look like their higher than kites, laying back eyes half open. LOL

I started my two girls in a parachute hammock and then switched to pouches. For daytime sleeping they prefer the pouch, but I'll catch one, two, or on occasion all three chill'n in a hammock throughout the evening/night when I hang one in there as a square hammock. I usually hang it high, off their ceiling but sometimes hang it slightly more closed off a lower shelf, then they don't mess with it as much.

I think some owners prefer using hammocks for pouch protective gliders, but personally I feel it's best to offer variety and let them choose. So I usually offer a pouch and at least one other style option (hammock, tunnel, cube).

I will see my gliders in all 3 types. For the day they sleep in there pouch at night sometimes Hecules will be in the corner hammock chewing on a stick (when I clean it out there are wood chips all in the hammock) and I have seen both Hercules and Bruticus in the parachute hammock at times sleeping. My guys do like switching it up where they like to sleep (or hang out).
