I heard that ornamentals dont like the feeling of peoples skin. Is this true or not i heard they just run off of it if they come in contact with it?? I dont know if its all species of ornamentals i think i just heard of one.
Suposedly some chemical in the skin reppels them. The few that I handled seemed way more confortable on cloth than directly on it. Perhaps they feel the contact of a living being way larger than them, in the wild that normaly means a predator, hence a normal stress.
On the other hand, a big T fed pinkies on a regular basis might percieve a smaller
part of you (ex: finger) as a possible snack. Some good reason not to handle often!
