Hello! I have had my iguana ever since she was a baby and now she's 3 and a half years old, 3 feet long, and she became very aggressive so I decided to start taming her last week. Ive been holding her everyday for one week now and giving her tours of my house and feeding her by hand sometimes but today she's acting different...when I picked her up she did her usual attempt to get away from me and then when I started talking to her to calm her down she closed her eyes and everytime she would open them it would be to get move around, trying to escape from my hands. So now she is just laying on my legs with her eyes closed not even moving and I keep thinking she will jump off any minute since Im not used to her being so calm. Is she closing her eyes because she's scared? She's had them closed for a while now...I figure she's sleeping but is this a sign she's beginning to trust me? I would also appreciate some advice on what other things I can do to tame her. Thank you!!

Here's a pic of her, her name is Tigeris...originally Tiger till I found at she was a girl at the age of 2 =)
