i have a male tokay that is about 9-10 inches long. just feed him a pinkie a couple weeks ago and he cant seem to get enough of them. anything i should be careful of??????is there such a thing as too many pinkies in a tokays diet? i hope not because as much as he likes them, i like watching him eat them :twisted:

I would definitely not feed your tokay more than one a month.The calcuim from the pinkies are good but too much is harmful to your tokay.A good habit to practice is to give your tokay a wide variety of different foods.Sticking to just one is asking for trouble.
You should dust them as well.

Too many pinkies in the diet can often cause fatty liver. Great advice, tokay,tokay
