I would take them to the vet ASAP. Red noses and/or feet usually mean some sort of allergic reaction.

If their noses are red for an increased amount of time, this is not normal.

Let us know what you hear from the vet.

Sometimes when glider's first wake up their noses are typically very flush and then they start to turn pink as they are awake.

ok so i had a horrible experience yesterday at a local vet/hospital near me they were suppost to one of the best ones to go to around here for exotics, first the dr walks in she looked all of 19, when i asked her about the diets she knew nothing about them didnt even know what hpw was...then my babies were so upset they crabbed like crazy she seemed afraid to take them out of the pouch, they will occasionally bite if scared enough...but she never weighed them, she said she didnt think there was anything wrong and didnt know about therir nose colors changing what that could mean...then she went to trim there nails and guess what when i looked in the pouch at them afterwards one of the babies had blood on her finger so she must have hurt one of them...all she said was well they look healthy i think they are fine..also she must have known how upset and mad i was because she only charged me half the amount of the bill....now what do i do Red Nose? 2309384424

I'm sorry your little ones had such a bad experience. If I were you, I would request for another Vet, or search around for another one.

Depending on their oxygen levels, you will notice different changes in their nose color. The most important thing to watch for would be is if their noses remained purple for a length of time. It's normal for the color to be a variation of color, but if the normal pinkish color does not appear after 15 to 20 minutes once they have been up and moving around, this is the alarming state.
