Leo will stop at nothing to try and eat my right hand.

So as the name suggests, it seems that lately before and after I'll go to feed Flinky he will always bite my right hand, Not in a defensive way but a hunting way.

He is a VERY eager eater but he sometimes has a problem distinguishing fingers from food. He'll snap out of his crazy dinosaur mode after a bit and calm down but it makes taking him out of the feeding bin a lot more interesting.

But is this a normal thing? Has Anyone else's Leo's had a hard time distinguishing fingers from prey items?

Also, He is 6" and 15 grams when I last weighed and measured him, is that a good size and weight? I'm guessing he's around 3-4 months old or so. And also he probably would be longer but he has a regrown tail, And I got him like that so his tail is a bit smaller and stubbier than the typical leopard gecko tail.
