 Personality and adittude?

I was wondering if any of you have problems with your basilisks? Negini will spaz out when I walk into the room and he bit me. He’s always opened his mouth alittle and got restless when I was holding him but today he full on bit me. I was just wondering if maybe this is normal behavior?

I have had him almost two months. His tank mate reasently died and he has been worse to handle sense then. He has always gaped his mouth when handled and the pet store told me he had a tendency to freak out and run around his cage, and he does, but they never said anything about him being aggressive like his is here.

If i may be honest, basilisks are not animals to be taken out the cage, 8/10 basilisk remain skittish and very hostile. My basilisk doesnt attack me i can pet her in her cage but i dont need to try to take her out or she goes berserk. basilisks are known for their skittish behavour. so keep this in mind if you buy one.

Some lizards become tame others not if its not in their personality they will never be tame.
If you wanna try and get it to like you.

Handfeed the lizards (Dont give up after 2 tries keep it goin after a while they eat out of your hand.)
Dont make any sudden movements.
If they bite dont be scared try again after a few weeks.
Spend ALLOT but really ALLOT of time with your lizard and it will be just fine.
