i got him from a friend about 3 weeks ago, and it was really scared at first so i didn't try to pet it or anything, i simple feed him everyday, pick up the droppings, and after school i would feed him some treats.
its been about 3 weeks now, he doesn't hide in a corner anymore, he does take food from my hand at times, but now he is trying to bite my hand every time i put my hand on the cage.
i know that it is not good to keep only one rat, but my parents will not let me get another one, and i also have to keep it in the garage.
i have no idea what to do.
please someone help me.
