Re: Hello!

Reptiles dont really get "tame", some come to accept handling without getting too stressed but some are just better left as display animals.

Re: Hello!

Agreed.

You will not tame them but you can train them. In the past I have bowl trained and pointer trained an iguana.

The sounds of tapping my finger on the side of a glass would make her come running.(looking for foood) With the pointer I started with little snacks on the tip on the pointer and she would follow. Over time she learned to follow the point regardless of if the food was there or not.

Have seen Geckos trained in the same fashion. If it is young you could also try a clicker. Search YouTube a little.
