Exclamation tips and tricks from experienced herp lovers please

Ladies and gentlemen I have be raising reptiles and amphibians from the time i was old enough to walk however I have only had one ig. she was already about 6 years old and had been raised free range so she adapted to my family and I VERY well she was never caged and always super sweet. Long story short I loved her and she was stolen from me. After mourning and struggling with losing my 15 yr friend I finally decided to get another. only it is not a baby baby, it is at least a year old and even after acclimating to its new environment it is proving very difficult to tame. Knowing how amazing they are after they are socialized i am determined to see this through. If some one would be willing to have a brief discussion with me through e-mail or otherwise about paths i could take to make this easier on me and less stressful to my ig I would greatly appreciate it.

Exclamation P.S

I have done considerable reading and i fully understand that the taming process can take up to a year. So far even though the ig is on a proper feeding and sun bathing schedule I absolutely does not like it when i try to touch it. there fore it runs and becomes incredibly stressed out before i even touch it.

awww I tried to help you in the other thread. I just think there are not a lot of iguana keepers on here. I'm sorry you weren't able to get more help.

In my experience, you need to be very patient. It takes a lot of patience. Daily holding, moving your hand very slow towards them, holding an open hand in their enclosure so they learn that this is not a threat... I have two that I am working with... I can see a tiny improvement with persistent gentle handling.
