Maintenance Feed Guide

Feed rates are based on Glider Nectar making up 80% of daily energy intake. If a significant proportion of energy is obtained from other food sources then reduce the feed volumes accordingly. Overfeeding can cause obesity, so monitor body weight of individuals. Offer acacia and eucalypt gum branches, native blossom and invertebrates daily.


Breeding and Growth
