My skink keeps huffing at me

Postby f14tomcat » Wed Mar 01, 2023 4:12 pm

I've had my Halmahera bts for about 5 months and got him as a baby. He doesn't run away when I hold him or show any signs of terror or hiss, but he huffs a lot when I handle him and runs from me when he's in his enclosure. He also doesn't bask much or come out of hiding until I leave the room. I've tried everything with feeding him and handling him often but he still behaves like this. Is this just typical "teen angst" / young skink behavior, or is it just a part of his personality that won't change?
