The problem with handling hatchlings is that they are born with the instinctual knowledge that they are on everyone's menu! That's the reason Irish doesn't like to be handled, and always tries to escape. He thinks you're going to eat him! As he grows,this attitue will slowly change, because there's not too many predators that want to take on a full-grown Ig. Keep working with him, and you'll get there. It just won't happen quickly. One word of caution: be careful of the tail! Hatchlings tails break off very easily, so don't grab or handle the tail...
