no... frilled dragons are different if you scare them they will live in fear the rest of their life .

best way is to live with it and accept it. you cant FORCE a wild reptile to like you... hand feeding is the best way to get him to like you but ..... i dont think it will really help.

i have 2 ausi males who refuse to let me near them. but i have 5 females and only 1 fears me. females are more personable and make far better pets then males, males are just for show.

There is no "taming" a Frilled .. all you can do is try.. try holding it once a day for 5-10 minutes .. and just continuing trying .. Some frilleds are tame, and some aren’t. Also check the background of your frilled .. if it’s a wild frilled and not bred in captivity, that may be the reason.

Be very patient, try putting ur hands in the cage every once in a while even if ur to going to try and handle it. This way they won’t associate ur hands with oh no it’s time to go out of the cage and freak out. EVery animal is different tho myi big male is calm as anything after he got settled in. However, on the other end I have a sailfin dragon that will bite me unless I have food in my hand. So it may calm down and it may not.
