If it is 13 grams and you fed it 2 days prior to the 'incident' and it had not defecated yet, then it would be considered enough. 1-2 appropriately sized food items and then wait until defecation.

Biting the sheets may have been a fluke incident. Nothing to do with the parasite, just phrasing. I use to have a western and I currently keep easterns. Occasionally they will "bite" non-food surfaces as they try to dig into them. Just from pressing into the surface in an attempt to burrow, their mouth will sometimes open as the rostrum pushes against the surface and cause their teeth to snag the surface if it is fibrous like a sheet or piece of clothing. It doesn't happen often, but my western did it once and my easterns a few times.

As far as a feeding strike, this will be a very aggressive attack on whatever the hognose is biting and is usually only triggered by a scent stimulus.
