Please try and understand, its a wild animal, the tick tells you its most likely wild caught and recently.

What that means is, its not tame and its not in love with you. Sorry.
With wild monitors, when dominated, they do what your discribing. If you check its heartrate, you will find its racing and not slow as it would be if it was sleeping.

Doing that is very stressful to the monitor. Let it regain its health and mentality before you attempt to have the monitor become tame. You have to understand, that monitor has been thru a lot. Do not expect it to be normal.

Next, monitors are EASY to tame or allow trust or a parntership, so don't worry about that. Worry about allowing your monitor to be normal first.

Also, my bet is, its a blackthroat and only because True whitethroats are rare in the pet trade, but it could happen, so a picture would be great. Best wishes
