Not mine. A GG post.

Evidently it's not a cut or a scratch, but actual bleeding coming from the ear.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
..could it be ear mites, possibly??

The glider I posted about above has passed on.
The owners boyfriend was caring for him, and has already buried him, and so unfortunately a necropsy is not possible.

Still looking for some insight on what this could've been though.

Bleeding from the ear is a pretty bad sign in any animal. For a glider, it would most likely indicate trauma to the head or face. I have not read the thread, but if the glider were truly bleeding from inside the ear in sufficient quantities to cause blood to come out of the ear, then there is likely nothing that could have been done to save the glider.
