No matter what species I work with these beautiful geckos will always hold a special place in my heart. I love their "stand my ground" LOl attitude and their large size, as well as the calls the males make during breeding season. I just got my old pair back from an unsuccessful breeding loan (yes, I had Tokays out on loan with someone!) and I am determined to produce some hatchlings this year. I also have acquired another adult pair and also a cbb subadult female.

Anyone else out there in Geckophile Land enjoy Tokays??

I used to keep them a few years back, and I must agree with you - they will also be one of my favourite geckos. The bigger the better :wink:

so there is hope?

sorry I am all excited as I am buying a tokay on friday (I wanted it because they are extremely beautiful.) and now not only that but I may also be able to handle it? :-d

by the way Dan that tokay is so cute!!!

thanks dead

if you buy a baby and handle it every day for about 10 mins, then yes, there is hope, if you get a WC, forget about taming it, the WC tokay are the most psychtic geckoes i have ever seen

good luck

While on the subject of Tokays, do they tend to dull in color as they age? I've seen some awesome babies-bright blue with blood red spots. Will they keep the bright coloration after growing up?

Will they keep the bright coloration after growing up?When their colors are dull it usaully means their stressed. Mine are usaully bright and beutiful but if I change their cage or do anything to stress them they turn a more dull color and not as beutiful.

yeah, when mine is stressed, she'll turn a dark , almost black color, and her spots will go from red to orange. :roll:

wow i didn't realize tokays were so huge! a local breeder should have some captive bred tokays but i don't know. itll be a big change for me after having my extremely relaxed fat tail. lol.

I like Tokays because they are mean
I collected lizards for years and to me a lizard without attitude is just sort of not a real lizard.

My Tokay is growing in size and assertiveness.

Bambada to answer your question about them getting darker with age.
Well aside from the factor of stress,i have been noticing brighter and darker individuals from different localities. :wink:
