Oh okay well congrats on the new russet, Ehrig is a great guy. Hopefully where ever that other lizard ended will be his last stop. I hate to see lizards passed around so quickly. I can't really take credit for Rhino. he was a year and a half old when I got him and it was like a light switch. All of a sudden when I brought him and introduced him to his new cage he was puppy tame from that point. Strange, I know but they are kinda like people and they don't like everyone. I have had other lizards that required some work and patience. It can get fustrating at times because I love to interact with my animals. Just respect them and put your personal wants aside he will come around. I probably wouldn't let him free roam a room too much if you are trying to get him use to you. It may be too much space and easy for him to avoid contact. I always let my animals get use to me in the enclosure and they soon learn that to get out they have to go through me. They eventually will start to crawl on you just from the curiosity of wanting to explore. They will like free roaming and will begin connecting you with those opportunities. He may become more open to you taking him out of the cage or may jump onto you so he can get out. Your animal has been in florida sunshine his whole life so it may take a little time for him to get use to indoors also. Oh and don't give him a bath, they don't like it. We may think it's cute but they don't.....lol. There may be some cyclura that like it but Iv'e never known one. Only if he is an absolute sh__tty mess may it be understandable, but that too will peel off in time with a shed.
