The cotton hanky worked for me with my corn. I left it in my bed all day when I was out at work one day, then put it under his hide and loosely covered it with aspen. He was never really aggressive or defensive at all - but he always seemed traumatised when I put him back in his viv. He'd just sit in one place until I picked him up and put him back in his hide. He sat in his cold end ALL night the first time I handled him (I assume) and he was freezing the next morning. The hanky made him associate my smell with warmth and comfort - so now he scurries back off into his hide, and he almost climbs up me to get out of his viv now!
Regular handling and a trick like the hanky (you could use a sock, or any piece of fabric really)
Yeah. Also sorry for the wrong reply!
