#805372 - 07/11/09 01:45 AM I have a marking/dominant question

I have 2 males & 1 is much bigger then the other jump. He will take food away from the smaller male and kinda run the sm 1 away 4m the food bowl! Anyway 2night the larger male (Marley) grabed on2 the smaller 1s (Morley) neck and started rubbing the top of his head (the bold spot) under my lil guys chin?? Morley didnt crab or pull away it didnt even look like it bothered him. So my question is will the dominant male scent mark on the other glider or is that not what he was doing?? Also Morley seems 2 stay back at feeding time I always make sure he eats but I just wanna make sure he is happy and if this is normal behavior! Other then that they seem fine 2gether they never crab @ each other and they sleep in the same pouch. I also found out that they r not brothers and that the ppl I bought them from didnt know exactly how old they r they told me that Marley was just over a yr and Morley is almost or just a yr!

You have perfectly described dominance scent marking behavior. This is perfectly normal and will not hurt the submissive glider in any way.
As for feedings, try giving them two separate food stations. Glider kitchens work very well for doing that - a glider can't be inside one kitchen and prevent the other glider from getting to the food in the other kitchen at the same time. Many people make glider kitchens out of Rubbermaid cake savers by drilling a door-knob hole into the side and then sanding/filing down the edges to be smooth.

Our younger smaller male, Cylus, marks our older big male, Rody. Rody is fixed and Cylus is not. But they share food with no fighting.
