Currently I have a pair of Mali uros. The female detests handling in any way, and the younger male will tolerate it fairly well once in hand. I think some species like the occelated and egyptian tolerate it more than say geyri or other more skittish species. Still, patience and gentle handling a few times a week would probably work on all. However, I am not sure you would get a shoulder rider lizard like a beardie LOL!! I think all keepers should handle their animals at least once a week to examine their condition. It gives you an opportunity to examine the animal for any signs of illness or injuries. You dont want to inspect your animal after a few weeks or more without handling and realize there is something not right going on IMO.
