Hi! I am Sam and recently, my hairless rex, Ron, passed away, so I got another rat, a hooded dumbo (Dexter), to keep my sister's hairless rex, Rufus, company. They did their dominance battle and they're fine together, but he doesn't like to come out of the cage. He is still really scared and bites me hard enough to draw blood. How can I calm him down? Thanks!

I'd try treat training! Obviously you can't really do the force socialization idea because he bites... I would open the cage door, and give him treats until he's comfortable enough to climb into your hands. Do this a couple times a day and make sure your calm and in a quiet place when you do it.
