I was wondering what was in the rhubarb to make it a nono for gliders?

Rhubarb leaves shouldn’t be fed to ANY animals. Side effects/symptoms include: staggering, trembling, breathing difficulties, weakness, diarrhea, increased drinking and urinating, death. Oxalates found in rhubarb cause systemic problems, especially in the kidneys, or they can affect the electrolytes in the body, such as the balance of calcium and magnesium. Poisoning can be acute, when large amounts of oxalates are consumed quickly, or may be chronic, where smaller amounts are eaten over a longer period of time. Low blood levels of calcium and kidney failure are commonly reported findings in soluble oxalate toxicity.

So is it just the leaves? I am asking because I picked up a bag of rhubarb in the freezer section.

The leaves is the only part I have heard of being toxic to animals... BUT I wouldn't chance it at all. I wouldn't feed any part of rhubarb to my gliders.
