As of now, I'm having a little progress but I'm worried because I still can't pet him without him stressing out/tail whipping/puffing up his dewlap/jumping everywhere.
I've been watching youtube videos on how to tame baby iguanas and all of them seem to be able to pick them up easily or pet them and I can't even touch mine yet! I also hang out with him in front of his cage's door.
I'm really worried that I'm running out of time because I've heard that it's much easier to gain the trust and tame a baby iguana rather than an adult. They constantly mention the importance of handling them as babies daily (which is my main problem)
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
