    Today my adult female blue tegu did a taste bite I guess, I put my hand in the enclosure and low and behold she slowly came up to me and SLOWLY bit my hand, without breaking skin, I didnt pull away and instead just sat there untill she let go then I went to pet her. Can this explain why she had been so nippy? Was it all because she just wanted to taste bite me?

    My baby did that to me today too. Didn't really even press down hard, just kind of did a gentle little grip with his mouth then let go. I just remained calm and didn't flinch or make a sound. Just curious little things :)

    Curiosity. Your response was good. I would've suggested saying "no" as well.
