Monster drew blood from me a few times. It hurts a lot more than you'd think!

I think it's very unlikely that Hugo will properly bite you. Nips are usually either warning signs to back off, or he's not that sure what your fingers are and he's trying to find out.
That's the thing he goes directly for my had rather than my arm and I do think he is just overly curious but then he did start chewing my hoodie so yeah...

I feel like the shock of being nipped or bitten makes it hurt even more Sad

Mice will not bite hard unless they feel they are about to be killed. I've had it done to me once, by Selina. The first time she ran away in my house and I finally caught her, with the adrenaline pumping and everything I ended up grabbing her pretty hard. She gave me quite the bite, although it didn't make me let go. When I did finally net her go, though, she was covered in my blood, and I washed her off with a damp paper towel.

I disagree, Anon. When I had Monster, he would bite me even when I hadn't done anything. If he was out on my desk, he'd run over and bite my fingers if he saw me typing. Not all the time, of course! Most of the time he would sniff nicely, but he didn't like to see me typing. So they don't only ever bite if they think they're being hunted. They'll bite what scares them or makes them feel the need to assert themselves. I've also heard of mice biting to get their way. It all depends on personality, though. Some mice are just a little more aggressive than others.

I meant hard, as in they bite down as hard as they possibly can.

My sweet little Yoshi boy goes through phases of biting, and he doesn't hesitate to bite as hard as he can. Those bites usually result in blood and sore fingers for a few days. "I don't want you in my cage today; Your big, dumb hand is blocking my view of that cat; Take me home now!" He's definitely not scared, just a brat!! He doesn't do it with anyone else, either. Giggling

I had a girl who would chase my hand around and nibble at me until I picked her up. It was like some silly sort of way to say hello. lol I hope you can get your boy to knock it off soon, goldfishfan!

Monster drew blood from me and bruised my fingers several times. I guarantee he was biting as hard as he possibly could.

I think I'm just going to trust that he won't nip me and just try and not freak out if he does nip Smile
