:Well I have just about had it with my iguana!

Well, letting him loose in your yard is definitely not going to solve anything... ;)
I can give you tons of advice, but any of it working is going to depend on your tolerance and patience level with him, and whether or not you're afraid of him in any way. Your first step is going to be not giving in when he bites and tailwhips you (or tries to). This means that if he's biting you and you're bleeding, don't pull your hand out of his cage, or let him go. This just re-enforces the bad behavior. Again, it's going to depend on your patience level, and how well you tolerate pain. (Baby bites really aren't that bad.) Persistence is going to be the key. If you can't handle that, Then your ig will 'win' and will never tame down. If it comes down to getting rid of him, Don't feel bad. Alot of people can't handle the taming process, doesn't make them non-ig people. It's tough for me even, and I've done it probably 20 times. Just don't give up on him. He needs you. :)
