ill help cover the handling for ya.

basically its gunna be fearful for a bit (like all reptiles) but a good start could be maybe putting an article of your clothing (old t-shirt or piece of one) just so the tegu gets used to your smell. then you could try hand feeding over time, and handling him/her for short periods of time. you dont want to be too firm with him for stress reasons and to be sure your not going to accidentaly hurt him/her. and if you want just put his tank in a room your in alot (like a bedroom or sumthing) so he can see you through the glass. once he starts becoming more handleable you can put him on your bed for a little while when your in the room and just let him become accustomed to you! (i dont have any golds but i have argentine b&w tegus) hopefully that helped a bit
