I doubt I can get a baby blood to sit still on a copier bed for the time it takes to scan its belly LOL At least not my current blood...I can pick her up once, then when I put her down, she turns really feisty. Makes it a bit difficult to change her cage...I can get her out and into the holding box, but getting her out of the holding box and back into the cage, is a fun series of her striking like crazy...to reduce stress I usually use a toilet paper tube to cover her head then scoop up her body. Once she's resting in my hand, she doesn't strike...its just the reaching down part.

Hopefully she grows out of that...only had her about month and a half now. Haven't handled her much as I want her eating regularly before I do so...so far she's getting more regular with eating.
