over ambitious eating machine..Woma

My woma is 18 mnths old and has not settled down at all. I still have to be so careful handling her. Not sure if she will still outgrow this or not?
I use a hook and she trys to eat that too. She will grab and wrap it and stay that way until I put the hook and her back in her cage.
Is there any hope at all that she will calm down with the food response in future so I can actually handle her?

A little back story. I got her last November and she was being fed live fuzzy mice by her former owner and was very thin, even for a woma, she a year old. I started her right away on weaned mice and , Ive recently bumped her up to xl mice and weaned rats..
She has made great progress but still I was hoping once she caught up she would settle down and its just not happening.
Any tips or tricks to get her more handleable?

She should eventually. One trick I learned with the hook and my male SD retic (who is so stupidly foody he will strike the RHP) is to rub it with a bit of lemon-scent hand sanitizer. The sharp lemon smell can throw them out of being foody once they encounter it.
