Hey guys, I just have a question or two about taming my mangrove. When I just got him, and before I had switched to a hands-off taming technique, I picked him up to handle him and take him to the bathtub. While in the cage he's incredibly flighty and would scramble around, but as soon as I picked him up, he was calm and flicked his tongue curiously. After spending at least an hour of everyday, usually more, this summer staying up in his room he's gotten a great deal better. He's comfortable, if a little flighty, walking around with me across the room and sometimes outside the cage if he's basking. What i'm wondering, is if it would be fine to take him out so I can let him swim in the bathtub if the sessions end with a positive, calm note. It would probably involve catching him. I don't want to rush the taming process, and I just want your thoughts. Thanks!
