#74403 - 12/24/05 12:32 PM Is my glider pregnant?

My two gliders are about a year and a half old and i've had them for about four months. I think that the female might have a joey or two in her pouch but I can't be sure. It looks like there's a lump in there and the fur around it looks darker and I can see the pouch opening better than before. But how do I know if it's a joey and not just a fold in her skin or part of her fat? I think they've been together for a while, the previous owner didn't really know much about them, so I'm not sure why it would take them so long to breed. Anyway, if it is a joey when should I start seeing it come out of the pouch? Thanks so much for any help you can give me! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/roflmao.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/gliderangel.gif" alt="" />

From conception to the crawl IP is 16 days, from IP to OOP is another 70 days, from OOP to weaned is8 weeks. The only advise I can give is to post a picture. If you wait the lump will get bigger.

ok I'll try to get a picture up. Just have to find my digital camera... Oh and Merry Christmas everybody!

If the lump is lopsided and is only about the size as a peanut then more then likely it is a joey or if thier are two lumps then it might be twins.Within a month they or it should be the size of a peanut

From a behavior standpoint, she'll spend less time exercising & will slow down her pace when she IS on the wheel. She'll begin growing wider and will "waddle" as she gets closer to out-of-pouch time.

Please do post a picture whenever your digi camera gets up & running.
