I'll chime in on not holding them behind the head as well. Unfortunately "gently restrain the animal behind the head" is what i picked up from various junk field guides and pet store herp books as a kid and did a lot of it as a naieve youngster.

I eventually started figureing things out for myself though and paid attention to what seemed to bother the animal and no longer did those things.
