Why Does My Hamster Bite Me When I Try To Take Her Out Of Her Cage?
 

Hamsters are very territorial. In the wild a lot of other animals would love a little hamster to snack on, so hamsters are anxious, very anxious! Sudden movements and strange noises can result in hamster bites which is their defence mechanism..nip and get out of there fast!  You can easily train your hamster to climb into a cup or jar lowered into the cage, then take her out that way. This way your fingers are protected and by removing her from her territory, she will feel less inclined to defend it. Better for you, better for hamster!
