I have 4 sugar gliders now. I got Waco and Odessa last January and I just got aristocrat and accent in September. I have an amazing bond with Odessa but not with any of the other 3 because they just always try to bite me. I can go up to their cages and call their name and they'll come to me because I usually have a treat but won't come out of the cage to me if I opend the door. I do the same thing with them as I did with Odessa but it's not working. And even though Odessa is great with me she refuses to come to me to get out of the cage and I kind of have to force her out, but after that shes fine. I just don't know what else to do to get them not to bite me and like me.

Here is a good article for you to start with: http://www.glidercentral.net/ubbthreads/...th_y#Post922929

You will need to start from scratch with them, but with patients you will eventually bond with them.

Please keep us posted on your progress.

:welcomegc:

The article Feather suggested is a great read from the gliders point of view.

Do you have a tent or a small bathroom that can be baby/ glider proofed? (Clean, toilet lid down, toothpaste, chemicals put away, and all holes, escape routes plugged?)

We have had similar issues with our two. Hubby decided to use a treat to lure ours out of the cage by pulling up a chair to the cage (it takes awhile), door open, and putting his knee near the door and holding a mealie just out of reach. That way they have to step out on your knee. Usually, they will snatch the treat and go back inside. But it is a start.

Reward is the best way to encourage them to come to you. It takes time and patience and consistancy. Gliders need a schedule and daily interaction. Once you get Odessa to come out on her own, the other gliders will eventually follow suit to get a treat - each at their own pace. Once they see she hasn't been eaten, they will learn that their human tree is safe. Also, remember: "Monkey see monkey do".

Good luck, keep us posted, and we love pics!
