Hello,
Is it normal for a 8 week old to hang upside down to eat upside down sometimes because my other 2 never ate like that ? also I noticed the other glider i have she is 8 months old she will stiffen her tail, into a S shape and shake it and it looks kind of like a moving snake , what do you think she is doing ? She isn't crabbing or scared at the time and nothing seems to be bothering her at the time, the other glider she is living with will be sleeping or eating at the time, she doesn't do it often but shes don't it maybe 4 times now.
Thank you ~

Yes, that is all normal behavior. mine will eat upside down it is something special like turkey.

The snakey tail thing is something they do when they see something new or when they are hunting.
Mine do the snakey tail when we play with the feather toys.

I am glad it is normal she must really love her sweet potatoes then, Its the only food she does it with lol
My glider that does the snake tail she does keep watching the new little one when I get her out of her cage. there in seperate cages but can see another but far enough apart cant reach through the bars at each other.
Since I have the new one she wont even eat a yogurt drop from me I think she is jealous if they do and she jumps in her bag now when i come near and before would dive at me .
but when I have her on me she sets on my stomach and stars up at me looking at me and falls asleep .
Thank you for all your help
