Not to be nosey, but may I ask why your BF won't let you have gliders? If it's money, then you should post a wanted ad on the craigslist in your area and also keep your eyes open on Petfinder. I got mine for just $30 and they cam with the cage and everything! The only catch was that they had hardly been handled in 2 years!
However, in just a few weeks I was able to get one of them(Sugar) to let me handle her without biring and Spice will let me pet him, but he doesn't yet like to be handled.
Also, if the reason is because they are alot of work, well, they really aren't. The first couple days are a little crazy, but after that it's easy as pie. Simply buy a couple fruits and veggies and cut them up into small pieces and freeze them. Then make and freeze BML in an ice cube tray. That way, at night, you just toss all the frozen stuff onto a plate at about 9pm and it will be thawed by the time they wake up.
BTW, my hubby told me I couldn't get gliders either, but heck, I had been wanting gliders since I was 12 years old and there was no way in h*ll that I was going to let him keep me from my dream, LOL! Guess what, now they are his favorite! The other day Spice even glided on his head and hubby loved it, heehee!
Ok, now, for the pics. I don't have many of the gliders because I can't take alot of pics with flash(it hurts their eyes) and the ones without flash turn out horrible, but here are the few that I DO have:
Sugar and Spice:
Here are some pics of my ferrets too!
