My glider has suddenly taken interest in my eyes. By that I mean hes now sniffs my eye and then he will scratch it really fast like a dog clawing at a door or something. I closed my eye then opened it again he did it again. The next time he did it, it really hurt so i pulled my head back so he couldnt reach but then he just did it again. Anyone know why he is doing this...or what it might possibly mean? He always climbs all over me and doesnt have a problem then all of a sudden he did this.

He may see his reflection. And he is fixated to the reflection. Is he a single glider?

You can try hissing at him when he does this, I strongly recommend discouraging this behavior.

I 100% agree this behavior needs to be avoided before you sustain an injury to your eye that could be serious. If you have to remove him to his cage, then that is what you have to do until he learns this will not be tolerated.

Try distracting him with treats or a toy. Anything to stop him.
