Well, long story short, I have a 2 year old, 110 gram female Leachie, and she bit my pinkie finger during feeding time and stayed clamped on there for about half an hour. Letting go just doesn't seem to be in her vocabulary. It kind of hurt. We eventually managed to pry her mouth open and release my finger but I'd rather not repeat the experience. Is there any trick to getting her to let go? Thanks for any advice.

PS is a 110g leachie big enough to eat pinkie mice?
