How can I get my baby panther to stop being so dang afraid of me? Today was the worst. I took him out to try to get him to eat this mealworm (he hadn't touched it for a day or two in his cage) and he wouldnt even pay attention to it, he is too preoccupied with being aware of me. After that he was walking on the back of my hand when he looked over at me and puffed up (I guess to seem intimidating, feeling threatened by me). After a while, i figured it would be best to stop eyecontact, so I looked away and two seconds later he falls off my hand ! Luckily, my hand was over my desk, so the fall was only an inch or two but I was really concerned and felt HORRIBLE. Is there any way to break him into being not-terrified of me?
