    Oh no!! I'm so sorry. Perhaps I should have mentioned that fast movements (even gently-tossed towels) are very upsetting to anxiety-prone animals. Next time I recommend picking him up with the towels already over your hands so you can swaddle him as soon as he's off his perch.

    Owwwwww...those cuts.

      nothing to be sorry about-you made that clear in your original post.i forgot about gently cradling him,and listened to the advice of my friend.the monitor was fine with the first 4 clippings,when he was still inside the cage.i think i'll just be patient and wait until he is in a position to clip the nails,one foot at a time.i want the nail clipping to be as less traumatic for the lizard as possible.
