Yep, I still have two thumbs. He hasn't actually bitten me, he's so gentle - even when taking food - that I have time to avoid the nip.

Now you mention it, the tissue trick seemed to help (if it's what I think it is). Last weekend I put a couple of wads of toilet paper under my armpits, that was when it was still summer and I was a bit sweaty so I'm sure the paper smelt a lot like me (gross I know! ). I shredded it, put it in his cage and the next morning he'd taken nearly all of it into his house and burrow, even though he's not bothered to collect any (paper) substrate to make a nest. Since then he comes to check out my hand even when I'm not bribing him with a treats.
That sounds a lot more reassuring knowing your experience seemed to help with the tissue trick! Haha, smart though, more gross but it did get more scent from you on to the tissue!
