How old is she, and how long have you had her? Are there other animals in the house that you possibly pet/touch before trying to handle her?

Also consider what hand soap/lotion you might use that she doesn't like.

And it's possible she just hasn't had time to adjust to her new surroundings yet wink

Many gliders seem to go through a testing stage (glider version of the terrible 2's) around 3-4 months OOP.

Keep making a PSSSTTT sound or say No firmly (not loud or yelling) to let her know it is not acceptable to bite.

Watch her closely, you will begin to see cues that she is getting ready to bite. Once you learn her signs, you can move your hand - and the opportunity to bite - away from her. She will probably give up biting you in a few weeks.

Keep in mind, your other glider may also go through this phase and watch for his cues as well. It might help you avoid the bites most of the time.
