...because our hands are warm.So if your ig doesnt like to be handled is because he is afraid of you.Try not to do anything that could scare him and be patient.

*****************************************************************
I have a year old iguana and hates to be handled or even looked at for that matter. I don't know what to do I handle him often and yet he is calm in my hand after a while he will be just as mean as when i first went into his cage to get him. Will this igg grow out of this behavior or will it always be aggressive. I use treats (food) to lure him and make him calm but that only works on him wanting to eat, not be handled.
