Bear with me, because this is going to be a long post:

I have had my gliders since June 2011. I had them on the standard Pocket Pets diet until I switched to a popular staple diet in July. I kept them on this diet until I noticed something strange..... I will post pictures so you can see what I have seen over the months.

We will begin with Ziggy.

This is Ziggy.

That was probably pretty subtle. So, lets move on to Gizmo

now, scroll back up and look at the pic of Cocoa's face, then look at her face NOW (keep in mind, it's only ONE month after a change of diet)

I think I'm going to have to give her a new name as she's not so "Cocoa" colored anymore


I post this thread because I am FLOORED!!!!! I thought I had them on a GREAT diet! I thought Cocoa just had some cinnamon in her that made her look so tan. But she was stained ALL OVER! Even Gizmo's flawless fur is almost back to a normal bright/clean gray and black. ... Ziggy, well, he must just have good genetics cause his didn't change too much

Those changes are drastic! Thank you for posting them, the pictures really show what everybody talks about.

So if I'm following correctly this is the 3rd diet they have been on????

PP pellets
New diet in July
Then 3rd diet as of approx. a month ago


Yeah, I wanna know what diets you've fed. They are looking good.

AWESOME! A lot of gliders do really well on Suggie Soup. Glad it's working for you and them.
