Kylie holding our tame male Salvadorii.
Disclaimer: This particular Salvadorii is a captive born animal who has been raised with human contact in captivity. I have had him for over a year and have worked with him on a DAILY basis since the day I got him. He is very accustomed to human interaction. He does not fear us and has no reason to. We treat him with respect and proper handling and care and he understands that we mean him no harm and that handling is a positive thing. It has taken a LOT of work to get him to this point. A lot of daily work, handling, talking, positive reinforcement training, etc. They are not dogs, they react to stimulus differently. However they are VERY intelligent. They can and do learn very well. They can learn to trust their owner/handler and constant working is how this is done if you're lucky enough to gain their trust. However if you mess up, you can lose that trust instantly! This is not a species you can mess up with. Their claws are sharp and their teeth are sharper! I get torn up a lot when handling him simply from him climbing on me. He's not being mean, it's just the species and how they are designed. However a bite from one of these would mean stitches at the very least. Please don't think that all or even most salvadorii are like this. They aren't. Most will never be pets. They are a beautiful species and an extremely rewarding animal to keep. However you must always use caution and know your animal! Don't do what I do. Every species has their exceptions, please don't think that this is possible with the majority of this species. It is not.

Additional: As I've stated before, MOST salvadorii are not like this. However I invite people to see him first hand to show that they aren't all psychotic. We do educational events for a reason. To disprove a lot of myths surrounding different species. Call it a fluke with this guy if you will... And my wild caught salvadorii I tamed... And my new, unhandled female who is already coming around... But if I'm successful in breeding these, I will 100% prove that these are tamable as I won't release any babies until they are tame.
