Nipping

Your glider may take awhile to get used to you, but when you have playtime you don't have to be completely still. And when she Bites, you want to take it ,in that you don't yell or throw her, but you can use your other hand to gently nudge her mouth off of you... or distract her with a toy (such as bird-toy with feather, etc.) . I do this and say in a low voice not to bite mommy it hurts. They learn voice tones and are alot smarter than most people think. Give her at least a few weeks, or even months, for her to adjust. Also, be sure to wash your hands and wrists well before playing with her. If she smells anything odd she may go after it. And they bite in nature to get the tree sap out and bugs, so after feeding any insects or food, wash your hands. They can smell any lingering scent and will go after a 'mealworm' or cricket' if they think your finger is one. Just talk to soothingly and keep trying. But you have to be consistant, giving her attention every day or night.
I wish you well. Once you bond, you will see it was worth the time.
