I agree with jf, their temperments will vary like in many animals. Most of them do become very tame if handled often. It is best to get them when they are young, or older ones if they have been handled often. If you spend the time to get to know them they will usualy become tame and may enjoy interaction. Many of the people on this forum can help you with taming tips. What you don't want is to be stuck with an aggressive adult that can do some serios damage to your or other peoples health.

: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
