It works with baby and adult iguanas, however, when theyre little you might not need the gloves. its all preference. I know people that always wore gloves when handling theire iguanas so they would get used to it.
lol Prism.. I'm still in my stubborn phase and my arms always look bad..Some people even ask me if I cut myself and then I explain I have an iguana and they give me this look..LOL..good times.. and when its not their nails that scratch is the tail of side of their bodies

yeah, its crazy. they arnt as deep as the claws but they cover a lot of surface! when george was falling and I was trying to hold on to him while he was doing the roll his body got my arm pretty bad. I thought about taking a picture, but i didnt want to be a dork :-P
That helps, thanks. I will be using the technique once I get mine, which will be another week or so. :-( my girlfriends step-dad, is going to assist me in building the home. Since I don't own a saw, and he doesn't completely trust me with one. but I wouldn't either. lol
i just had to reply to this all be it a bit late i have had this problem before and i found this to be more of a problem when they go into seasson i have found and i know what some of you might thing but trust it worked with my iggy when my iggy was in seasson and was very agressive i at first was a bit nervouse to say the least but it got to the point i couldent even put food in viv so i challenged him and stood my ground i used a v shaped stick to start with somthing like what they use for komodos but smaller then once he was pined i just grabed him firm and held on for dear life for a few minutes a day after a few days he had learnt that i was boss and backed down but kept his distance and hissed a lot how ever when i got my sav monitor he was very agressive and fleww for you as soon as you went near the viv i traned him nice by giveing him a bath every two days they swim like mad to try and get out off water but by offering your hand for them to climb on they then start to see your hand as safe i have had him for 2 months and know hes eating out of my hand and will even sit still on me hes like a diffrent lizard the same works for iggy aswell it also works for mixing speacies like iggys and savs mine both have bath together and they get on really well now dispite at first they couldent stand eachother but as soon as they hit the bath the fisrt time it was like magic after a month i could put them both in the lounge window without any problems always remeber lots of handling hope this helped soz im rabbling on again
but always remember these are wild animals and can turn at any time so never let ur guard down

Just a suggestion. You will get more response if you start a seperate thread with any new questions. As for your question, no females are not like males in breeding season. Most of them tend to get a bit,...well,....cuddly! Though you will get the occassional one who acts up.
