>>OK, so after I vented with my post I went over and fed him all greenery - so I was able to hold it one piece at a time rather than him eatting from my hand. Of course he started with a damn tail whip (right on the bite mark too ! ) but after that he let me hand feed him one piece at a time. So at least I fed him and didn't give in to his bite.

The biggest thing to remember is these are basically wild animals. While they are listed as captive bred, very few are actually bred in a home. They are Farm Raised. It can take a long time. Look at your caging and the stressing factors around. Do you have dogs or cats? They can be aiding in the aggression. Is the animal in an overly large cage? That can be stressful as he can not find a safe place. Is he in an aquarium? He may feel threatened by the other "Iguana" outside his house.

Is there a chance he is just an unpleasant fellow? Yep. Hopefully Jiffypop will respond as she has such good luck with taming igs.
