I think so. Many times on a very hot day, have peaked down at Arwen in my "bosom" and she would be damp. and she would smell extra sweet (yes S-W-E-E-T!)

does anyone else think they sweat? and smell sweet when they do?

LOL

Most likely that sweat is from your bosom... not the gliders. LOL

I am not sure if they sweat or not. Even if it's your sweat, then I am sure that moisture would make her smell stronger. dunno

Thanks for posting that Gretchen!

So they can only sweat from their hand and foot pads...interesting.

Good to know! Thanks for that. cool

Maybe it's a combination of her sweaty hands and condensation from her respiration in an enclosed space? Sweet smelling fruity suggie breath! Maybe you just need to get a fan going in there! ooo
