Your welcome. I hope you enjoy him.

Stoph, you dont need gloves you just need to be quicker than they are :). I dont use gloves for anything, I have been bit by more things trying to use gloves just because it is hard to get good control.

well they both took a bite out of the petstore owner causing some bleeding so...I don't know first impression wasn't a good one.(it's also possible they hated him so much ;) )

Cliff,
Can you give us a pic of how to 'hold' the gecko? I'd be grateful! Not to worry, I'm not doing so until next week!:)

I've kept tokay geckos for seven years and haven't even held one! I don't like handling herps if they don't like being handled.

Is it because you dont like handling them or are you just scared of the them!!

Don't like to handle them and they certainly don't like it(barking,hissing) but if it's really necessary i wouldn't hesitate to grab them and move them. But at the moment i leave them in peace by transporting them inside their hiding place.

Well,
The time arrived. I handled Zeus for about 3minutes this evening. Let him crawl up my arm and jump into the other hand! I held him and he gaped his maw a few seconds, then closed it!:) It's good to get him used to me, as he AIN'T gonna be able to bite me when he's fully grown!:evil:
