As a general rule, most milks are very secretive. There are exceptions though. I have a female nelsoni, male gaigeae, and a pair of sinaloae that are active quite a bit and cruise around their cage as much as any corn or rat i've ever seen.

at the opposite end of the spectrum though, I have a female gaigeae that basically refuses to be caught in the light. she is "under ground" 24/7 and goes ballistic for about 2 min after being pulled out of the cage. she's 2 years old and about 4.5 - 4.75' now... so thats lots of fun.

also, most baby milks are a bit jumpy and/or like to musk for 6 month to a year in my experience. after the year mark almost all will get more and more calm with age.
