    So I've been working on trust with the ameiva.
    Not for handling, but so she doesn't freak out when I need to go into the enclosure for some reason.


    Today's progress made a big step, we moved from tong feeding(I don't tong feed all the time, just occasionally), to hand feeding.

    Yeah she's a spoiled ameiva for sure.
    Or atleast I think it's a she. Previous owner said it was full grown, and by the look of the Jowels.. They aren't being enough to be male?

    Well here's a little update.
    Im pretty sure the ameiva is ok with me being in her enclosure now.
    Think my "work" with her is done.
    Only going in her enclosure when i absolutely have to.
