My male Rico is more strongly bonded to me than my female and loves to be on me. I love it as well except for the fact that he seems to get overly excited and bite certain parts of my body. Always the back of my shoulders, sometimes back of hand, armpit or legs. Sometimes I see him rubbing his body up and down me while biting. Is he marking me, over excited or hungry? It is never aggressive but I still want it to stop. I want to trust him in my shirt without being nervous.

I believe he might be doing what he considers "grooming" you... mine did not begin to do that to me UNTIL AFTER they were acclimated to me handling them and stuff... I don't know how to stop it... but I do know he is trying to scent mark you by rubbing his head on you, making sure everyone knows you're on his team lol

Thank you, that is comforting and makes the little nips well worth it. He keeps trying to go in my bra, but I won't let him because I'm terrified of him getting in there and "grooming me". That would be very painful but I don't want to stop any possible progress with the bonding.
