    My tegu is very good in his cage he eats off my hand will climb up it to come out lets me pet him. But when i take him out he runs and hides in a corner and stays their. So i cant use that method of taming. I been trying not to take him out till its used to me which it seems like he is when im in his cage but not out. Is their any methods i can use to where i can take him out and he wont run away and hide in a corner?

    Well, others have experienced tegus that take time to adjust to open surroundings.

    I'd start again with the tub. Once on your lap, gently cover him with a loose-fitting t-shirt your wearing. He'll like the secure feel and darkness. You should talk to him.

    Return him while still under your shirt also talking to him.
