Has she moulted recently? Sometimes their temperament changes after a moult.

My smithi moulted a couple of weeks ago and has turned into a right moody cow, I was flicked at for the first time yesterday :gasp:

she moulted about 4 weeks ago? but she's normally fine after i even had 2 help her out once cos she was a bit dry n was stuck had my fingers right by her fangs but she didnt bother, since she bit me im a bit hessitant towards her do u think she could be picking up on that?

My girl has also sometimes her weird moments. Although she never flicked hair (only the day before she moulted and I tried to move her away from the water bowl to clean it) and never bit .. Sometimes she is so lazy that locusts can crawl over her body without making her move ..

Nah, they're not bright enough to pick up on your mood.

You may have just startled her.

Some are aggressive, my mate had one that was a total BITCH, so he sold her. mine was a little saint (Although he did love to flick hairs abit) lol. was cool though i could handle him and things.

As for taming...... nope i doubt they can be tamed. it should be fine when its on you so if you manage to get it out the tub just try guide it on your hand and dont make any sudden movements :lol2:
