HA ha ha ! Welcome to the club friend. Everything likes to eat young gilas so they need to be mean. Dr Seward told me that in its simple truth!They calm down with age but males usually get mean for breeding season n my females are vicious when nesting.fyi

For me it seemed when I was first keeping them they almost sensed my fear or misunderstanding. Once ones riled only time n quiet seem to calm them too. They are pretty emotional for reptiles. IMHO n be careful cuz they are tough but they stress out easy too. Give him what he needs as far as somewhere around 80-85 half the day or so n plenty of clean water n a couple choices of great hiding places then leave him alone. He'll come out hungry hunting early in the morning usually when he is ready to meet you. They are far more intelligent n emotionally complicated animals than all the other reptiles I have kept. My beadeds n Gilas surprise me all the time as I learn new things about them hands on. Good luck n be careful.....peace
