I recently acquired a young Tiger Salamander. Can't be more than 6-8 inches long or so. Beautiful animal. My concern (but I'm glad he's healthy at least) is that he's quite nippy, especially when it comes to my fingers. He LOVES to bite my fingers LOL. Do these guys calm down with handling? I understand due to sensitive skin it's best not to handle them too often. What's your take on this? Thanks
