Can you handle Banded geckos and how fast are they? Thanks :D

They re not very fast and as for handling, they can be handled delicately. Most dont like to be restrained.DerekC

When I got my 1.1 coleonyx v. variegatus the female was quite young, and the male was a sub-adult. I treated them exactly like my leos, and the female tamed down easily while the male squeeks and runs me around the enclosure to pick him up. Their offspring were handled right out of the egg, and they are as tame as my leopard geckos. Although most reptiles I have handled do not like to be restrained in any way, I believe that the bandeds can be 'tamed' with patience and regular handling... especially the younger they are.

Just my experience!

I have a couple of sub-adults that are quite tame.
