Bath ? I was told on this forum not to do that so I stopped. Besides in order to bath him I would need to chase him around the tank and scare the crap out of him (quite often literally)

Well, in a week I am leaving on vacation for 2 weeks - I am going to move him to my mom's house where he will be feed piles of food and no hands.

After I return I will need a new revisit my attempts.

Should I get a larger cage yet or wait? side to side be fits fine, front to back I suppose his tail would need to bend 2 inches or so. I have been patient with this animal for over a year, but its been since christmas that I have been following the advice of Iguana's for dummy's -- so really its only 6 months. I'll hang in there but I need more advice than just be patient.

If I go back to not hand feeding him that will save me a lot of stress (and potential pain). I am afraid to chase him and catch him for a bath - since I am aware his bites hurt and draw's blood I think baths are out of the question. Unless I can use gloves ?
