Other species pet has been exposed to and reaction: Has not met other species besides gliders.
Health concerns: None.
Behavioral concerns: Rocky is in our Trust Training Program due to mouthiness and shyness and is making great progress! Learn more about our Trust Training Program here: http://www.mnpocketpetrescue.org/trust-training
Other notes: Mo and Rocky were introduced to each other in August, and were able to be in the same cage as each other in September. Mo is a little food aggressive and will start fights with Rocky if he is worried about food. I always give Mo a food dish first, then put a second food dish on another level for Rocky. Mo always needs treats first, if he knows you have a treat and he thinks Rocky is going to get it, he again will start a fight. Sometimes they can eat out of the same bowl, other times not. This is something that will need to be monitored and worked on. They may not be the best pair of gliders for first time glider owners.
