Hi,
Thanks for your insight in to uro's, I'm always interested to hear different opinions as it gives me a better idea of how to proceed. Going on what you have said I think my plan should still fit in with the way they are as he doesn't seem to be shy about coming out of his viv and as I mentioned I won't even be touching him at first if I can help it, so I guess I'll just have to try my best and see what happens and if I don't see any improvement then maybe as you said he is just one that isn't going to calm down. It is weird with him though as you mentioned about handling, well he doesn't seem too bad with being picked up, as he crawled over to me from his previous owner when I went to collect him and seemed quite calm about it and then again the day after I got him home I let him out and he tail whiped once when I first put my hand near him but then let me pick him up and put him back in his viv and he didn't freak out or wriggle, so that is maybe one of the biggest pluses I have with him, that one of the hardest things to get them used to is already not too bad, in fact very good from what I can tell, but who knows what behaviours I'm going to come across. Thatís why I want to take it slow so that I can find out his quirks so that I don't push it too far too quick. Any way time will tell I suppose, I'll let you know how I get on with him.

Cheers
Martin
