My boys-Freddie and Barnabas aka Fred and Barney have developed a new game. We get in the bonding tent and they crawl down the back of my shirt and go to sleep-like real sleep! I have to pull off my shirt to finally reach them! LOL!
They will play for a minute, then right back down the shirt they go!
Are they perhaps bored by the tent and do I need to add additional toys? Their cage is full of various toys and cool stuff- a doll house, a wheel, climbing things, treat cups and bells and tiny toys (that usually some at least end up in their pouch!

Hanging fleece braided rope will help.

Natural feathers or plastic bugs you can play with will get them to hunt. Encourage play.

Mine liked to climb as high as they could get, and I would reach up and let them climb on the back of my hand.and tput them down on the floor. And repeat.

That's a favorite game of mine.

Claralice, consider it a sign of affection that they want to snuggle down & sleep on you smile

Thanks Hutch and Dawn. Dawn, I do have hanging ropes (fleece squares) and they love to climb to the top and then dive or if I put my hand up they will go up the arm of my sweat shirt. I love how they do all these interesting things and are just so sweet!

Claralice, I'm totally considering on setting up my tent and doing a vid on the set up. I won't have my babies on there, but it could help get other's creative juices flowing, which is one of my main intent with my YouTube channel. Trying to show how fun it can be to set up safe and fun cage designs for sugar gliders. I'd love to have more footage of my gliders in action, but the lighting is pretty bright, it's not just a couple of flashes here and there, so I keep any recordings of them short. Of course, I may get a Flickr or Dropbox pics with already pics I have of them in the tent and post that instead. Will have to see what kind of time I have to do whichever first.

In the meantime, if you want to exchange email or some off-board messaging, over mobile, just let me know and I'll pm you my contact info. Then I can share pics from tent play time quicker.
