So I was playing with my little redtail today. I'm trying to keep him as tame as possible and as used to being handled and basically able to tolerate anything anyone may want to do to him. So a part of his handling routine involves me touching his head, either rubbing him under the chin or on top of the head. Today i got a little more bold and decided to touch him on the tip of the nose with my index finger. Ive done this a couple times before, usually he will stick his tongue out just far enough to touch the finger and will just kinda sit there looking around. Today well.... not so much. He pulled back a little, gave one good flick with his tongue, then WHACK!!!!!! suddenly my finger was in his mouth . i couldnt help myself from reacting and jerking my hand back, and i felt the teeth pull out of my finger. I scolded him (which im sure did alot of good ) and we sat for a little while longer as i examined him, everything looked ok, and there were no teeth left in my finger. judging by the marks left his bite is about 3/8 inch wide though . anyways, based on his previous behavior and the way this all went i think this may have been a feeding response. hes usuallly very shy about eating in front of me, but maybe something triggered him..... either that or i had just mucked with him a little too much today. What does it sound like to you guys?
