last night during luna's <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/gliderangel.gif" alt="" /> playtime, i remembered hearing about gliders enjoying a round of "beat up the paper ball" So i went on a head and crumpled a peice of paper and tossed it around, it seemed to scare her more then entertain <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/upset.gif" alt="" />. So i thought about it and made smaller peices and she loved them <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" />. While she was playing i noticed that her goal was to open the paper so i came up with the idea of getting a small piece of paper and putting a mealie at the center and crumpling it back up (not to the point where there are mealie peices everywhere) <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" /> and i threw that paper ball along with a few other empty ones and there she went taking the paper apart and when she saw that there was a mealie inside she went crazy, she was so happy and excited that when she was done she went looking around in the other ones, so i hid another mealie and the fun just went on. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/party.gif" alt="" />
so i guess its just a cute suggestion since she seemed to have a blast at taking the paper apart and i know its hard trying to find games to play sometimes. Let me know how it goes if anyone tries this. k?? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thanx.gif" alt="" />

we tried it again last night, it sounded like i had a paper shredder in my room. It was so funny because she does this noise and stance of victory and sits on the paper. I love it

We tried it last night during our tent time. Pip was hysterical, we had 3 all together and if you rolled on he would chase after it and pounce...he was determined to get them open. It was soo cute! but should I worry about him chewing and possibly swollowing some paper? He did not seem to be interested in eating it but he did chew a bit. how cute!

I dont think they would swallow any paper, luna used her teeth, but only to help her open the paper...Good question though. Im glad it worked out <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

ITs a great idea as long as you use printer paper.Writing can kill them.

You want to watch the ink that is used on the paper. If it is a vegetable based ink it should be fine, but other inks can have chemicals in them that are not good for the suggies.

Luna has a blast with it (to bad i cant say the same thing for the mealie) But its funny because she doesnt seem as enthusiastic about getting mealies handed to her as she does when she has to dig them out from the paper ball.

I did this tonight with yogies in the paper. They seem to go for it once. If I rewrap the same paper they're not interested. I think it boils down to 'peel n eat' instinct. Same as when I give them litchee whole. They love to peel it and eat the fruit more than they love the fruit.

I think the sound of mealies scratchin around gets them excited. But each glider is different. Atleast they had some fun and thats what matters

We wrapped the mealies in red tissue paper (Christmas) and by the time they got interested in the paper...the mealies were half way out..they grabbed the mealies and said to heck with it..just GIVE ME THE MEALIES! LOL
