I know what you are talking about and they are safe for glidres. The color is made from vegetable oil, but they are not hard like wood, they feel more like foam.

I think i have heard of them too, i think it is a pretty nifty invention.

[:"green"]I have given them to my gliders before, but they didn't have much interest in them <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nixweiss.gif" alt="" />. But, my gliders aren't chewers like yours is, so maybe yours will love them. I've actually been toying with an idea of making my own fruit-flavored wood toys by soaking them in hot, non-gelled Jell-O. Haven't tried it yet, but maybe I will over the weekend <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />.

I have Bill drill holes in manzanita perches and we fill them with a mix of mango nectar, acacia gum and bee pollen to make healthy treats... if there is any of that the chewers normally go for it before chewing on too many other things.

I tried the wood in non gelled jello my glider wouldnt go near them, everytime he would get a wiff of one he would crab and lunge at it. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nixweiss.gif" alt="" /> maybe he is just crazy. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

I'm not too much of a Jell-O fan, but got to thinking after I read your post. Since Jell-O is supposed to be a low calorie thing, is it made with sugar or the other stuff? Too much sugar isn't good for them and the aspertane(?), whatever is defintely not good for them. Maybe a package of unsweetened Kool-Aid would be better - that is if it doesn't have any additives.

In the wild, gliders chew on trees to get to the sap. Maybe you should try to put a real branch in there. He will debark it. When he does, it's time to replace it. Debarking is also good to help clean their teeth.

In the Tropics somewhere between the port of indecision and southeast of disorder!

One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure its worth watching!

I am wondering if a product made for hamsters… and no offence… but rodents… that have teeth that continually grow so I think the product is made to help them keep their teeth ground down… gliders teeth do not grow that way so they don’t need them for that… maybe you can find them something more interesting …. As mentioned maybe so safe branches to work out their chewing issues…
