hello, to have recently bought a pregnant mom, a joey and the father. the joey is about 4-5 weeks old (oop) and hes great, the father is great too, but the mother is a total witch. i dont no if im doing something wrong or if its the hormones. she will be just walking on me and start to bite me, my arms and fingers. i tried washing my hands but that just seems to make her bite me more. these are my 1st gliders and ive had them for a week now. Please help. i need to advise!

It doesn't sound like she is doing it to protect her joey. Try distracting her from biting, watch and when she is going to bite give her a little tsk tsk noise to stop her. You can also gently blow on her and tell her no.

You haven't had them very long, be patient and you should be able to get her to stop.
