The easier way to bond with your gliders is to do it when they are sleeping. be sure to have clean hands, and gently remove one from their sleeping quarters and place it in your shirt pocket. They need to be in the pocket for warmth and to recognize your scent. Most of the time the glider will go back to sleep. Talk to your gliders so they can recognize your voice at all times. Gliders are not smart enough to initiate human interaction, so the role is left to you. Holding your glider gently but securely- start with the female- petting it and talking to it, is the best way to get started. It's important to remember to not make loud noises, sudden movements, place the glider close to the floor, or jerk away when/if they bite. I have 8 gliders, and the only way I was able to make them tame was to work with them, handle them- got lots of crabbing in the beginning- and talk to them. They are like little best friends if you are successful at your endeavor.
