you may want to slow down with your handling.... for a few weeks don't even bother to try and hold him.. just reach in there and move around a little and then as he gets calmer with this... you can start to stroke him on his side NEVER on his head or tail, and rarely on his back until he is ok. After that put your hand under him NEVER OVER (it looks like you want to hurt him if you grab him all the way around) and lift him a little bit and put him down.

It takes time with iguanas but they calm down if you don't rush them..

You will notice that they will freeze when you are in their cage for a while. where you could do any thing to them... this is make believe tameness on your part... they are scared stiff at that point.
