    Interesting. Some eggs or baby worms may have been transfered into the cricket colonies at the bug farm and then you just happened to get them in your purchase.

    I always just picked them up and started handling them.

    food is your best friend. Start by hand feeding some worms. This will get them used to your presence and then you can just hold them for short amounts of time.

    Merlin- I get a panicking psycho lizard when I try that. XD

    No, I haven't! Merci! Oh, and I managed to pick Thorn up today without him/her trying to propel itself across the tank. :3

    He took a mealworm treat from my fingers today without trying to bite them! Yay!

    They have sharp teeth and strong jaws but not very good depth perception, and a "blind spot" in front of their snout, meaning the fingers are quite likely to be bitten at some point..... :((( ;)

    Thorn's trying to burrow, I think... he's in his water dish clawing away with his front feet like he's trying to dig... but he's been letting me pick him up without too much craziness lately, so I'm hoping s/he's finally settling down. But is the burrowing behavior normal?

    What are the temperatures in his cage?

    96.6 in the hot end (I brought it down a bit from 100.3 and he stopped a bit, he's scratching at the glass right now...) and between 80-83 in the cool end.

    You need a basking spot of at least 105-110.

    Whenever it gets hotter than 100, he just sits down in the cool end with his mouth open. >.<

    I think Thorn is insane. o_O Possibly.

    Can you post a picture of his entire enclosure?

    The surface should be 105-110, not the air temperature.
    And the gaping is normal, it's like a dog panting.

    All I can see right now is his tail and the top of his head poking out of his water dish. XD
