    Default taming tips?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    ive had bagel for almost a year and a half now.At first, he loved coming out to explore and i could handle him. In August i went away on vacation for 2 weeks and my dad took care of him. Before my trip, I handled him 3-4 times a week but he wasnt handled by my dad. When i came back, it seemed like he didnt really recognize me and was a bit skittish. less than a week later, i moved and thatmade him go off food for a week from the stress. Since then, ive been leaving my hand in his tank for a while and hes not scared of it and sometimes will come up to lick me but never on my hand.
    Any tips on how to handle him again?

    I would just say to start with baby steps as you are doing. Hand in tank for a while, then see if you can get him to walk on your hand without taking him out of the tank (gently slide your hand under him from the front so he walks up onto you), then short times out of tank, etc. It will take time, but if he was comfortable with it once, he probably will be again. Patience is the key.

    Talking to Bagel in a low and comforting voice as you approach his enclosure and while you're with him may help taming too.
