I just got a nile monitor but i know from experience that the babies can be downright mean and if not taken care of properly you can end with a big mean lizard. Anyone have any suggestions on how i go about "taming" it? In the past ive had a petshop owner tell me to let it bite me as much as possible as a baby so it wouldn't have the interest to bite me when it got bigger. Would that work? or is there another way. I Have no problems with being bitten by it, he's only seven inches long right now and can only put pressure on my hand.
