"I recently got a STO, and I cannot get him to want to be held! He trusts me, cuz he comes to the cage door for treats and will eat them out of my hands, but when I try to hold him, he runs around the cage like crazy and when I do get ahold of him, he bites me! It doesn't hurt, but I figure that he doesn't wanna be held if he is biting! I do have ferrets, hedgehogs and chinchillas in the same room... do you think he is on high alert and stressed from the smell of the other pets?? Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated, because I would LOVE to be able to hold and let my STO crawl on me! Thank you in advance!"
