My neighbor has an intact male and a female glider. I don't believe she's pregnant. But my neighbor, Charlie, just texted me worrying about his female: she doesn't have any strength in her legs. He also said the front legs seem weaker than the back ones. Her ears are not down, she's still eating, she's not awake at unusual times... just... weak. scratch I told him to get her to a vet, which he said he plans to do that, but I'm wondering if anyone has had this problem with a glider before? What it might mean?

It means the glider is ill. A vet visit sooner than later is necessary.

Be sure to have fecals, urinalysis, x-rays and even bloodwork if necessary to find the cause of this. He can call me if he likes.
