so i guess exotic pets in las vegas has some for 36 dollars, that's a pretty good deal in my opinion. they are cool, just wondering, could they be housed with a female tokay??

Well we sell our CBB ones at 50$ each.Again these are 5th generation Captive bred and born.
As far as them being housed with Tokays.Yes.Everything is the same as far as requirments go.We are even working on a hybrid between the 2.

hey guys, i know itīs an old threat but i think the gecko on the pic's is a gekko siamensis! i have both species by my own... so that' why i'm nearly sure! what's about new pic's from that animal. and what's about hybrids... does it work to cross tokays and green-eyes? nice greeting georg

12-18-2008, 11:12 AM
You are right, definitely siamensis. Not seen too often these days. But luckily I do have a productive breeding pair.
Smithii are not so easy to get here. I lost my male a couple of years ago and since then I am searching and the females are getting older and older....

I just love Green-Eyed Geckos. I first heard about them in the late seventies but there was never more than just a couple available and it was years before I was finally able to obtain one. I have had mine now for almost two years and he's a great animal. On of these days I hope to have a pair and eventually two trios of them. For right now mine is living peacefully with a Skunk Gecko and a female Tokay. Theuy all get along fine and I've had no problems with them being aggressive towards each other. They were all single animals that people had given to me...except the G. smithi. I bought him as soon as I saw it available.
On another forum Ingo and I talked a few years back about the fact that for years I knew the gecko as G. stentor and not G. smithi. They used to be listed on many price lists as G. stentor.
Have a Great Day!!!

Beautiful animal.
Hey Spawn, are the Tokay, Skunk and Green eyed gecko all females?

And I for one am not into hybrids, personally. I would rather buy a Pure Green Eyed or Tokay, especially CBB, but thats just me.

Hello Saille:
I haven't relly checked them but I know the Tokay is a female because I hatched an egg that she laid. Amazingly the baby is in with the group but he/she is over 5" already.
I'm not into hybrids either. These animals are together only until I can pair them up. They get along fine and do not bother each other at all. Why...I can't answer? It could be the cover they have or that they have plenty of food. Whatever it is I'm keeping an eye on them but they seem to get along fine.
Have a Great Day!!!

Typically these geckos do not interbreed readily.
I had a female smithii together with a male siamensis for almost 5 years without a single fertile egg.

Hello Ingo:
I agree with you. I have the three (Tokay, Skunk, Green-Eye) together and they barely pay any attention to each other.
Have a Great Day!!!
