Hi all, so I've written in the health section about some issues I've had with my GCC Java a few times, health wise he's doing well and we haven't had any scares since thank goodness but now we've moved on to a new issue. Java has recently gotten VERY bitey and aggressive, he's got a good attitude when he comes out of the cage and he'll just chill and or play like he always has but then very suddenly out of nowhere he'll grab onto me bite super hard, twist, and won't let go. He's been consistently drawing blood and cutting my hands and I'm kind of at a loss. He's been eating, drinking, bathing, playing etc. normally and there haven't been any changes to his diet or anything so I'm pretty sure this is puberty related especially since he's going to turn two in march (yay!). I guess I just wanted some advice on how to deal with the not letting go, biting in general, and anything I can do to make the puberty phase pass easier. I know about the "no bite" way of training him to not bite where you leave them on a chair and ignore them for a minute or so but I'm not seeing any results from doing it even though I'm being consistent with it. Any and all advice is appreciated!
