Hey all, I'm new to this community so I thought I'd say hey. I got my iguana about 3 weeks ago -- he's just a little green thing now; the pet store said he was about 3-6weeks old. He's my first iguana -- I named him Cornelius.... even though I don't even know if he's a he ;).

I've been devouring iguana info, from the webbernet and books and am currently trying to tame him. He doesn't freak when I approach the tank, though quick movements tend to startle him. Any advice on the taming process? I want him to grow to be a beautiful 6-foot-long lizard, so any tips will be appreciated!
