I have no clue, but I hope someone will be along soon who can help. Did you try PMing Val? Good luck!

I've never seen this, either. Are they bald spots, or raised bumps? There is such a large contrast between the spots and the fur that they look like raised bumps. I hope that someone can help!

I have spoken with her before about them.

Here is where I stand about things like this - if you have had some tests run, and there are no symptoms, no clinical signs that cause concern to medical professionals (change in size, dark pigment, etc) and no trouble from it, I don't worry about it. Just like with people, some variation in physical features, while not common, is not abnormal. People might have birthmarks, skin tags, moles, folds in the ears, pronated feet/ankles, etc. These are differences we will notice when looking at them, but they aren't health risks (well, the pronated ankles are, but you get my point).

So, since there is nothing actually wrong with the glider(no symptoms that cause concern), I would just say it gives him character and go on enjoying the heck out of 'em.

Let me first say that I have NO idea what a pronated foot/ankle is but it sounds disastrous. LOL

Second..I've told Taylor this, time and time again. Taylor - stop worrying and giving your gliders issues that aren't issues lol. I can't say it enough (to several people) and I agree with Val, 1,000%. Leave well enough alone and just enjoy your gliders, people!

Ok, ok, ok! I wasn't exactly worrying. I had posted about these on GC and no one has seen them before on there, so I thought I'd post on this forum and see if anyone else has seen anything like it before here. There hasn't been any physical changes in the spots and their well-being hasn't changed either, so I'm not worried….anymore. I was just curious if anyone on THIS forum has simply seen this before since it's just kinda odd.
