How long have you had him? If it has been a short time, it will take a bit to "warm up to you". There has to be trust there for him to want to feed out of your hand. As of now he may very well see you and your hand as a threat to him....just give it some time, try try again, and eventually it will happen. Good luck!i try feeding my trippie by hand be he dose not seam interested looks some times acknowledges it but dosent try for it is it that i just need to keep trying let him get uset to it or repetition?
