So I have a colony of 6 gliders, they have been together for about 4 years. 1.5 years ago I put them in a glider safe room. 15 feet by 10 feet.
I leave the cage open and at night they move around freely, during the day they sleep in the pouch in the cage. One glider almost never leaves the
cage, it is a big cage, the other 5 will sleep during the night outside the cage. At one time this was in a card board box filled with fleece extras.
Now I added another cage on other side of the room about 3 months ago, put just a few items in it, another wheel, castle, hanging cups for treats.
during a room cleaning I put the ball pit (unused) on bottom shelf of new cage with fleece blanket and neck bonding
pouch. they have made a nest
in the ball pit blanket and nap there at night, 2 to 5 of them.
so.. my worry comes up because the last 2 days I did the normal pouch check for 6 healthy gliders in the morning about 10 AM during removal of the old
food. but first morning I found 4 in pouch and 2 still in ball pit. second night I found 3 in cage pouch and 3 gliders in ball pit on other side of room.
Is this separation during the day bad for the colony?
I have seen them sleep apart in second pouch in cage, but never so far away.
At night they are still running around normal.
