I'm with Rick,
all of my rosies,except one LTC, will not hesitate to bite(and hold on for the ride too) even after they've been handled a lot!
This is not the rosy's falt though. 90% of the time I open a rosy box I am feeding and they know it!
I sent four of these evil biters(4year old animals) home with my dad a few years ago and you can open a box at his house and handle these same animals without worry. He changed their feeding responce by changing the way he fed them. Now they are great animals to handle.
Even my worst biter kenyans will not bite once the animal is out and in hand. I do not recomend digging through the aspen/bedding with you hand to find them. I use a hook if I can't find their head first. Always approach from behind and you'll be fine unless they are ambush mode and the tail end is near the head, then use the hook.
