No animal is the same as the other, even in the same species. How they react to different handling methods is on a per animal basis. In this case, from what Ive read on the thread, it sounds like he/she is just afraid of you. To make it not afraid, frequent handling is key. If it bites, dont let it make you put it away(try some gloves), then it knows(even though theyre not the smartest animals) that biting you will make you leave it be.

However, some animals just simply do not warm up to hand holding them. This might be the case for your animal. At that point youve gotta just respect it and leave it be. Sorry.
