    Oh my, my heart did a little flip flop when I saw the title of this thread.

    Well Wolf, when can I send my husband to you so that he can get a few pointers? I am a firm believe that an old dog can be taught a few new tricks.

    Well PAK, how about picking a man who has attended the wolf9striker school of male/female relationships or moving on to the next? Once they lie, no shiney thing can fix anything unless of course... it is surgically implanted in their nose so that the man could be led around publicly for all women to see.

    And Niki, I agree with Joe. Keep picking her up. By putting her back down after she bites you, you are positively reinforcing an inappropriate behavior. She gets what she wants by nipping you, you reward her by not handling her. Sooner or later she will give up biting you if you try real hard to pick her up a few times a day.

    Chameleons are not the best choice for a pet if you want an animal to constantly pick up and or cuddle. They are easily stressed. However, the advice you are getting here is good. You need to get over your fear and just do things matter-of-factly. Eventually it will get more used to you being around and picking it up, but I don't ever think it will become and animal to interact and play with. I have been keeping chameleons since the late 80's - some seem to settle right in and some seem to always remain spastic. By the way SIH, I have an umbrella cockatoo - when he nips you it hurts.

    You could always buy a pair of thin tight fitting gloves, they tend to calm you a bit by offering some buffer betwen you and the fangs of the ferocious Dino.

    Reminds me of my aunt tring to hand train one of our African Grey parrots. Her hands all bloody from being bit so often and the bird just exusted from all the biting and steppng from hand to hand.

    Hi Nicky,
    In this magazine I sometimes read there is a psychic who people write in to, and sometimes theres questions like: Why wont my dog sleep in his new dog bed? or something, and the person sends the question and a short explanation in with a photo
    Then the anwser ot that sort of question is usually something is missing in the new home/bed, for example a nice soft pillow that is no longer present in the dogs new bed
    Then the people write in again and say that the psychic was right and that they found what was missing in the new bed.home and the pet is liking it again.....strange but true
    So find out what you didnt include in the new home, maybe it was her favorioute tree branch she was always on? Or maybe you changed the lights she used to love going under?
