I got one handtamed!!

So I have just been slowly working on handtaming my gliders so I can get to know them and give them names.

I have one tamed he will sit on my hand forever and eventually I have to take him off so I can take care of kids etc...

So I decided on a name for him--Irwin after the late great Steve Irwin. My glider is so calm and sweet so I thought it was fitting

I am still working on my other glider who has been lovingly nicknamed Mr. Crabs.

I'm really pleased for you! It's a great feeling when hard work pays off. Hopefully Mr Crabs will see what he's missing and join in!!!

Great name, Steve Irwin was a great man who will be sadly missed.

Thanks everyone!! Hopefully Mr.Crabs will come around and I will be able to give him a better name. I just want to get to know him better so I can give him the right one.

I will get pics soon!

Thanks

Mr.Crabs bit me good today--almost broke the skin. I wasn't expecting it cause I was playing with Irwin and he just came out of nowhere. I jumped a mile and now the little bugger is really scared of me. I have been putting tiny bits of honey on my finger and letting him lick it off (when he will) which is what worked with Irwin. Hopefully he will come around soon.

Aww, I hope that you have better luck soon. Sounds like he's a stubborn one.
