Well, she did calm down a bit. I put her in her pouch, turned off the lights, and left the room, and came back an hour later. I kept her in my shirt from about 1 pm to 7:50 pm. I continually opened the pouch and petted the top of her head and her cheek, as well as fed her a Honey Roasted Peanut (with a majority of the salt wipped off). She didn't crab much. Actually, when I put her back she came out of the pouch, because I moved it a little too much. She scurried around the cage, and I thought she might be scared so I put my hand in there to try to lift her to her pouch. She actually crawled right into my hand, but didn't stay long, she crawled in, looked around and crawled out. But I praised her for it, so hopefully she will do it again! I know I have the patience, but sometimes it's hard to deal with when I've put so much time into her, and she isn't putting any back. But you're right, she's just a little girl, and she's scared. Hopefully it will change.
