I have a rabbit that is very friendly when I pet her, but when I reach for something else in the cage, she nips me. She didn't used to do it, has only started recently. Anyone know why, and how I can stop this behavior?

Also, know any good rabbit forums?

Thanks!

I have a female rabbit who is very territorial when it comes to her cage. I used positive reinforcement to make her more comfortable with me 'invading' her safe space. I would either offer treats inside or place her favorites outside the cage to keep her content until I was done cleaning.
