Hi! I would definitely love for you to work with me on taking him/her (to early to tell sex so Iím going to go with he just because thatís my gut). I am optimistic that I will break through this exterior. He is the most aggressive iguana I have ever encountered, but the other iguanas I have had or family has had were tamed early on. He is not an adult yet so that is why I think I can make a change. As we speak I actually have a builder making a 6ft high, 6 ft wide, 3-4 ft deep habitat for him. It should be completed next week. Pablo has actually whipped me in the face and a few times (it hurt like hell) and he has a strong tail. I have been bitten many times already, but have learned how to hold him so that it minimizes the risk of biting my flesh and instead just my clothing. He has jumped for my face a few times recently which is why I knew I needed more expertise in this area. Even in HOT weather I wear a hoodie when I hold him to prevent him from biting me and tearing up my arms with his nails. People are always asking me what happened to my hands and lower arms bc they are constantly cut or bit and scarred from him. I do not react negatively or hit him or put him back down when he acts up, I just try to get more of a grip on him. He will eventually calm in my hand when I stroke his third eye, but if I change the position of anything he gets in full aggression. I am an adult and have 4 children. Currently We have a snake and veiled chameleon. We are reptile family. We havenít had an iguana since my second son was born (he is 9). We lost our iguana that we rescued in college from a college student who felt the desire to get one and not care for it and I had him for almost 13 years. I teach K and always have animals in my classroom and thought this would be awesome to someday bring to work to teach children about. My other iguana I tamed easily (he was an adult and not use to human interactions but turned out amazing) and he free roamed and also had a huge habitat, but never once bit me. I had the occassional puff and whip of tail, but this guy is literally killing me. My own children ask when they can touch him and I say Iím not sure if you ever can, but Iíll do my best. But literally itís killing me because I know to help him I need to hold him daily, but every time I hold him Iím physically getting hurt. He tries the roll and tears my arms up. He bites my sweatshirt, bc he canít get to my hands, he huffs, and whips like crazy if I so as tilt my head. Iím not giving up on him so I am willing to do whatever I need to. Iím hoping with the new habitat he settles down more, but also worried that it will be harder to grab him to hold. So yes any help would be amazing. My email is email@example.com. Thank you so much for your response and I look forward to more ideas.
