If you go to the Glider Gallery and look at the 2005 SGGA there should be a video that someone took of Alice's glider running in one of those balls. That should give you an idea of what size to get. I have one of them, but mine didn't seem to like it very much so I just put it away and haven't used it. I have heard that you have to be very careful about using those balls. Make sure to keep the inside clean so that feces or debris will not injure the gliders' eyes and be sure their nails are trim to keep them from getting caught. It's possible for their nails to get hung in the tiny holes in the ball or in the carpet on the other side of the holes in the ball. Just be very careful and never leave your glider unattended while he's in there. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" />

Also, he peed in it and was ALL OVER HIM..:( Poor baby..ball went out the door and he had to have a bath..with GLIDER DRY SHAMPOO that is. He didn't want nuttin to do with us for the rest of the night.

[:"green"]I have one of the 6" diameter balls for my gliders, but I rarely use it because of the urine/feces problem. It becomes very messy, very fast. Some of my gliders like the ball, others don't seem to care, others don't like it at all... Each glider has their own opinion <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />

I'm sorry , Badgersmommy. Your post was amusing!! I think if I were in a see-through ball I'd get frustrated too!
