When it comes to bonding
, it's common for one to be more bonded
than the other at first. Each glider is unique in personality. It may take more time with your shy one. They kinda work with the "monkey see monkey do" mode. She just needs to learn to trust you.
As far as diet
, yes, kibble today has come a long way. However, sugar gliders teeth don't continually grow like rabbits, hamsters and other rodents. They are marsupials and like us. They have one set of permanent teeth.
There have been several diet
studies done in recent years that haven proven to be more healthy than offering a dry kibble. The BML diet
is in the top 3 as one of the best diets
for gliders. It has unsoluble fiber that gliders require and the calcium to phosphorus ratio ( 2:1 ). Kibble is great as a snack to be offered during the day.
Heatrocks are not recommended for gliders. If there are two of them, and they have a sleeping pouch and maybe a few pieces of fleece, they will keep each other warm, unless the room temp is cooler than what is comfortable for you.
