I love honey LOL
Marz, I would love to hear more about this glider meatloaf...
It's part of the Healesville sanctuary diet. They use ecopet pet loaf. I just make my own instead as I found most of my gliders simply didn't like the commercial loaf.
Totally off topic now so I will make it short & sweet
Most diets use spawns of the artificial nectar mix from the Healesville Sanctuary diet, and that nectar mix is the the main component of their whole diet. With some fruit and veg and a little chicken,mealworms etc their diet is complete.
Healesville Sanctuary does it a little different. It has more essential components to the diet & the nectar mix is only one of these. My own diet is based off this but I have adjusted it with my vet's* approval to suit my situation...after all I am not a zoo with thousands of animals to feed each night (though it feels like it) so I can be more flexible and don't have to streamline. Meatloaf is served most nights in lieu of the fly pupae so that's why it's important to my diet.
Basically it's a mix of cooked meats, various grains, egg, grated veg,fruit & most important native plant parts (my secret herbs and spices
). The amounts and contents vary seasonally. Depending I could be adding honey or pollen or Wombaroo HPS or even sustagen.
It works very well for me.
* My Vet has worked at many zoos including Healesville Sanctuary and she is a published author on nutrition so I value her input.
