Okay so i purchased A leu female about a month back, and will be getting her another glider soon.
But I'm confused I know she isn't 100% bonded to me cause she still gets scared.
Ive been very confused though, if i put my hand in the cage she hates it, especially if i put my finger out she crabs and dislikes it, but if i put my hand in a fist, she will crawl onto me and be more comfortable, any suggestions on getting her not to be scared of my fingers?
also she sniffs and nibbles on my fist, not hard but she bites it before she gets on me, any clue what thats about?

Gliders are prey animals in the wild. Fingers may appear to be talons that can grab a glider. Your fist is less threatening. Try putting treats in your open palm - with your fingers held together to make a flat surface for her to step onto. That may be less threatening and as she learns to trust your flat hand she will be less afraid when you open your fingers.

Many gliders go through a terrible two's stage where they tend to bite and taste EVERYTHING including your hands and fingers.

If you see cues that she is going to bite make a Pssstt sound or say a firm (not loud) NO to let her know it is not acceptable behavior. Move your hand away as you say Pssstt so she cannot complete the bite.
