How to Tame an Iguana? Train Your Iguana to Be Handled

Iguanas are fascinating creatures, each with their own unique personality. They’re known for their incredible climbing skills, sharp claws, and that iconic whip-like tail. But beneath this prehistoric exterior lies a complex creature with intricate behavior patterns that make them far more than just their physical traits.

Understanding your iguana’s behavior is the key to building a strong bond and making your taming efforts successful. For instance, did you know that an iguana’s tail whipping behavior is a sign of fear or stress, and not necessarily aggression? And those head bobs they often do? They’re actually a form of communication. Cool, right?

Taming an iguana isn’t just about training them to accept handling. It’s about understanding their nature, their needs, and their signals.
