i have a veiled and she's pretty calm, she has yet to hiss or gape at me and she has only jerked at me once while i was trying to clean her cage. the problem is every time i put my hand in her cage, she runs from me, but if my dad puts his hand in her cage she comes straight to him and wants him to hold her. i don't think this is normal cause i've read alot that says they don't like to be handled, which mine doesn't, unless its my dad. i thought maybe it was a height thing, but her cage is up high so my dog can't break through her screen and eat her. i have bait (my cham) in my room, so she doesn't see the rest of my family often, but i'm homeschooled so i do most of my work in my room. she sees me almost the whole day on week days, but has only seen my dad maybe 4 times since i got her, and only for a few minutes each time. Bait even lets my dad pet her. she doesn't fall asleep or seem stressed when he does, he just stroaks her side an few times and the stops, but she doesn't puff up or anything when he does. However if i try to pet her the same way he does, she sticks out her throat, makes herself bigger, and gives me an evil look. should i be worried about this?
