situation, but my female seems to be what I would describe as territorial. When anything invades her cage she shows agression. That includes both my hand and the male. Once she's out she is as tame as a puppy and if put into a new enclosure, she completely ignores the male.
Interestingly, she show this behavior with the male even when hunger is not an issue. Have any of you who house your FWCs separately noticed anything comparable?
