Hi! I got a baby Savannah monitor these days and I am trying to build trust with him.

I usually feed him with tongs.

I allure him to get on my hand (I never touch his food with my hands) and let him have it.

Here is the thing. He usually tries to hit my hand with his claws like digging the ground, push his head between my fingers and bites me.

He is still a baby, so I just let him do whatever he wants. When that happens, I just wait for him to let me go.

It seems that he can’t distinguish between his foods and my hands.. though.. ((I never touch his food with my hands)

Is it normal?

or are there any tips to teach him the lesson ?

I don’t know what I really should do for him..

I hope I delivered my messages very clearly.. since I am not a native speaker.

In my country, most of reptiles keepers tend to tame their pets with force and that is the last thing I’d do, so I would be really appreciated ur help and advices..

Thank you for reading!
