If you really feel like you aren't able to get past your fear, you might want to consider re-homing it? Not because I think you suck or anything, just because it might end up with an owner willing to take the bites and what not.

There is no shame in re-homing something. You just need to make sure whoever gets her/him is fully aware of it's temperment, and is willing to give it a long term home.

Might be a silly reply, but could you not get a cheap leather gardening glove, wear that when your in his tank and just let him bite away?
Will he soon get the idea thet his agression isnt working and calm down?

Just a thought, maybe its a silly idea but better than getting him re-homed.

I just thought that with having weak jaws the bite wouldnt hurt much anyway, just need the confidence to let it have a nibble, and if the glove is on it defo wont hurt.
Dont know if it will stop it, but at the moment biting is having the desired effect of it being left alone, so if the behavior isnt working maybe it will get fed up?


The missus is doing Phsycology at college.......maybe i should stop reading her books :lol2:

If it is going into a threat display when you enter the viv or try to handle it leave the poor bugger alone, it's stressed. Not every animal you own will want to be handled or have its home disturbed (and yes that includes feeding..)

but as she's said it does it when she sprays his enclosure or feeds him, with cresties that just involves placing a dish in... i dont see exactly how she can avoid feeding and spraying him???
