Tokays are awesome parents. The males and females are very protective of their babys.

LOL every time. They will fight you when you try to take the hatchlings. The hatchlings will run under the parents and the parents will stand their ground and fight. It usually takes me about a week before I can catch them away from the parents.

took me a month.

although it was my mistake to make the log so that i could not get my hands inside. its a big log so i could not fit it inside another cage with a lid.

i ended up snatching the log when the babies were inside and the parents were feeding. still took me about 30 minutes to catch all the babies. 3 in all. parents were not happy.

Great pictures :)

The parental care is what fascinates me about the Gekko family. They take their responsibility so seriously, and yet we tend to consider them lowly animals.
When I had G. stentor, I'd sit for hours watching the group. They were specially interesting to watch when there were young ones to guard. I, too, got my fair share of nips and bites from them. ;)
