Exclamation Black Iguana

I recently go a black spiney tailed iguana from Petco and he was labeled as a club tail. I took him to the vet because whenever I get reptiles from pet stores I take them there
He was severely dehydrated and was thin. Petco was feeding him cabbage and iceberg lettuce and I told Petco iceberg isn't good for them. The vet gave him fluids and he looked 10x better. I'm trying to get him to eat and drink but he will not. He seems to like raspberries a lot but leaves his leafy greens and other veggies alone. I assist fed him critical care mixed with just squash and mango baby food. He's also very crazy and will not let me hold him. I've tried multiple times to hold him and he just hates it. I'm not sure what to do anymore ):

He's stressed out. Try not holding him. Feed leafy greens and fruits. There's tons of info on iguana diet. Give calcium, vitamins and plenty of sun. He'll come around after some time.

Yeah I haven't held him for a few days. He hasn't really been eating his greens except the berries I give him. I put some critical care in some of the berries but he refuses to eat them
