Oh no! :(

I have Snickers the hamster for a year now and about a month after I got her, she bit me. I play with her a lot and the other day she bit my brother and today she bit his friend. They have never broken the skin or even left a mark, maybe she isn't even biting. I don't know what to do with her.

Well, as long as she didnt break skin its a warning bite or its "Omg this is a new smell wonder what it tastes like!?". I would worry until she breaks skin.

She might just not be used to humans. Just handle her with care and love.

My gerbils do the "omg a new smell" thing, after i've ate something or if I smell different. They have never broken MY skin but as for my sister.. well she was aggervating Josh.. so Josh just went out and said "Leave me alone!" LOL.

Ok I was thinking that maybe she was grumpy or something, I am going to keep holding her a lot and hopefully she won't be biting anymore. Thanks so much for the quick responses!
