Today I went to Canton, which is a town that has this fair like thing once a month, where they sell animals, and mercandise at basically a fair ground. There were so many puppy mills, it was horrible. And they were all outside, in the 98 degree weather. They had puppies, bunnies, birds, and there was one booth of gliders.
The poor gliders! It was a mill. They were not tame, and the one I held was a biter! The lady was holding this baby that "was playing dead" on it's back, and making these hiss, purr type noises, and it was mean, and bit. she was using old shoe laces as harneses, and bropped the baby so it was swinging by it. They were selling them by ones, and to impulse buyers, that didn't know a thing about them. They just thought they were cute. They were telling them that two would be fine in a small rabbit cage. NO WAY!! How are they supposed to GLIDE?? Oh, it made me so mad and sad to see those poor gliders, cooped up in the heat. And they didn't sell them cheaper if you bought more than one, so they were only selling them in onsies. They need friends!!!!!
I did learn that they were a lot softer that I thought though. They feel more like a bunny.
If I get a few of them as babies, can I tame them more, and teach them not to bite? My hedgie didn't come from a good home, and he is calm, and tame now. Will gliders do that? She claims that as soom as they come out of the pouch, after a week or soo they play with them every day. They just didn't seem that socialized to me.
