Temperment of C. nublia and hybrids?

Hi, all.

My wife and I visited a local reptile shop (East Bay Vivarium) and had a chance to see some lovely C. nubila youngsters. I've been interested in keeping an iguana ever since I was a child, and Cyclura in particular have always appealed to me.

I'm only deterred from purchasing one by doubts about their temperment. I've met more than my share of highly territorial, vicious Green Iguanas, and I'd hate to wind up with an iguana I couldn't interact with.

Do C. nubila (and the lewisi hybrids) have docile temperments? Are there ways to raise them to ensure the best possible temperment?

Thanks very much!

-John
