    Hi there.
    I own five chinchillas and all are wonderful except for my grey neutered male, Thomas. He has always been very nippy but has been getting progressively worse. I tap him on the nose, give everyone except him a treat, reward him when he is good etc. He even misses out on playtime when he bites really hard. But the other day he actually attacked my hand and tried to tear my skin. He is neutered but is so aggressive I don't know what to do. He is in a cage with a female but he is always aggressive so I don't think she has any part in it. Any help is greatly appreciated!
    Thanks
