Hello all... Just got a super nice male russett rhino from rob ehrig. He's a young adult at 3ft, 6lbs and 2 1/2 yrs old. Would like to get everyones experience and tips/advice on tameing down a older rhino ? I dont think he is aggressive by nature, but has ran into to cage trying to bite me a few times, but kinda expected as i've only had him for 2 weeks. But any help and advice would be helpful as this is my first rhino or any lizard. His uv and heat is good, i check his temps via a heat gun ands its at 100-105 on the animal. Eating collards, squash, mazuri and treats of bananas and berries. He also has good spacing as ive dedicataed a whole empty bedroom for him to roam and also has his cage with the basking site to go back in. So the husbandry is good, the tameing is what id like any advice and experiences on. He is not young flighty rhino, but a big young adult thats not scared and will stand his ground. any advice is helpful ! thank you
