I got my argentine black and white tegu about 3 weeks ago, and she is about 2 feet form nose to tail, and almost a year old. I ordered her from varnyard herps and she was in hibernation when she was shipped to me, when i got her she was awake and very nice and had no problem with me holding her or petting her. And she hasnt really been handled before i got her. Then she went to sleep for about 4 days, and when she woke up and i tryed to pet her or pick her up she ran away from me.
She is never really mean and dosent hiss or ever try to bite me, but she dosent let me pick her up. I try and work with her every day and she is getting better and letting me pet her but still dosent let me pick her up. And when i try she squirms alot.
I know you are not suppost to feed them in there cage but i do because she wont let me pick her up and move her to a seperate feeding bin. And i dont want to chase her around trying to catch her and scare her. But i do make sure she is in her hiding spot when i put the food in so she dosent see me put the food in.
Can someone please tell me if i am doing anything wrong, and if there is anything else i can do to taking taming her better and quicker, and give me any tips, Thanks
