We have some basic necessities such as large bird cages, homemade glue bags and sleeping bags, cage accessories and toys, and an abundance of local fruits. We are actually blessed with a variety of tropical fruits that we can easily get, such as Jambu air or water apple, sugar apple, papaya, ciku, rambutan, mango and so on. A glider only needs a diet with lots of fruits and vegetables of different varieties, complementary foods (GliderSLURP), crickets and mealworms.

I just got home from my couch from work. I didn`t notice the glider until I put my hand on the head of the couch. I was shocked and squeaked a little, I noticed that the glider reacted in the same way. haha. Then I panicked, I didn`t know what to do, so I cut an apple (small portion) and gave the glider. She took it and licked the moisture around the apple and I realized she was at first, like she was avoiding me (scared, I guess). After a while, she was fine.

I called my BF, we decided to release her. We took the glider to the “forest” of Puncak Alam (Shah Alam). Hmm. There are a lot of trees there and I hope the Tress will stay there in 2-3 years (probably due to development). (T_T) I hope I`m doing the right thing because I don`t like keeping animals in cages.
