Include, but are not limited to:

* Consistent head tilt to one side
* Delayed response times
* Poor motor control/ In-coordination
* Head bobbing
* In-coordination of eye dilation
* Sudden Blindness (in some cases)
* consistent confusion or elaborate fear which interfere with daily routines

Is it possible for a glider to be "special" or mentally handicapped? I recently acquired three gliders that are rescues. One of them is named Luke. Luke is different from the others. He can't seem to glide if he does he drops to the floor. He repeatedly attempted to climb a wall by jumping on it unsuccessfully (it was too smooth). He likes to run in circles for no reason upside down on the top of the cage. He also often sleeps separate from the other two gliders and is more aggressive to the glider I had before them. Do you have any idea if he's special or just different? I'll love him either way.

Running in circles on the top of the cage is a sign of stress and is common in newly acquired rescues.

The other things you list are common of rescues that have had limited experiences with out of cage time and with proper enrichment. Give him time and go slow and he will likely learn all of these things--- same as many rescues have to learn to use a wheel or to play with toys.

Aggression is also common in rescues and is even more common in gliders with some health issues. Have they all had a full wellness exam, including testing?
