My Juvenile is still scared of me...

He won't ever let me pick him up for feeding time or bath time. Not only that but he'll try to squirm whenever I do get him.

About 10 mins ago he actually hissed at me but luckily no bites. Idk if it has to do with him glass surfing but I am getting a background for him soon.

Just wanted an expert's opinion on it.

It takes time I have had mine since last Sept he is now 7 months old and is just now calming down - keep working w/ him - take a piece of your clothing or old blanket scrap something w/ your smell on it and put it in his hide - he will get used to your smell also hand feed him - I started out right away w/ the hand feeding - it will get him used to your hand - and have your hand in the tank a lot - cleaning getting food dishes in and out etc................ hold him in the evening when he is ready to go to bed and lights off - that is a good time as hes not so rambunctious-- talk to him -- Blaze actually came to the food dish yesterday morning when I was putting his dubias in his dish - he was right there watching and going after the bugs as I was putting them in -- he has not done this - so it takes patience eventually he will come around -- look how long its been w/ mine--- dragons have their own personalities and they learn to trust - they are all different
