Default Help with new dwarf hamster biting!


Iíve had hamsters for years mainly Syrians but Iíve also had 2 Russian dwarfs before, the most recent hamster Iíve bought is a female Russian dwarf named olive! Sheís adorable but..... she wonít stop biting me, Iíve had her about 2/3 weeks and every time I put my hand in the cage to feed her change water bottle etc she walks straight over and bites me! Iíve tried everything Iíve read online, talking to her so she gets to know me, putting my hand in the cage to get her used to my scent, putting some toilet paper with my scent in, tried hand feeding her nothing seems to work she just keeps biting me!

Sheís in an Ikea Detolf cage which is huge so I donít think thatís the problem!
Iíve had Russians before and never had any problems with taming and biting does anyone have any advice?

Thanks Iím advance,

Is it just when she is in her cage that she bites.? She could just be a bit cage territorial. Some hamsters are completely fine out of the cage and don't mind being handled but they get stressed and scared about hands coming into their cage and attack and bite as they see it as a threat.
