Bandit twitches from time to time when he's sleeping - only then, not when he's awake. is this okay?

Yes, this is pretty common. It usually means that they are dreaming.

As long as your glider is NOT doing this while up and fully awake for a length of time. You will notice on occasion, when you take your glider out of warm pouch, or expose them to bright lights, they will shake/twitch for a few minutes or so until their eyes/body has acclimated to the sudden change.

Whew! Thanks! I figured it might be something simple because it only happens when he's sleeping. It's soooo cute! There's something about holding him in my hand while he does it, I get all warm and fuzzy inside. lol

Yep, sounds like normal behavior. Mine even bark in their sleep.
