My gerbil is nibbling on my finger when i stick it in the cage.They are not biting hard.I can lay my hand flat into the cage with food on it,but they are more into tasting my fingers.I even try washing my hands but nothing helps.Why are they doing this?
They're not sure whether your fingers are edible or not. They should figure it out in time. Keep washing your hands. If sometimes there are interesting smells on your fingers, they'll keep tasting just in case. I wouldn't worry about it.
