@ lucas339

those look like 2 females to me. was there any size difference? generally male tokays are much larger than females. In my case, I have a pair and my male doubles my female's size. Keep your ears open for barking too. Once wild-caughts males are well established they usually don't hesitate in waking you up in the middle of the night :P

I'm agreeing with you as well. Poor things, they look so skinny. I would think it'd be hard to guess by size difference in that condition.

they both are the same size. i do plan on fatting them up. one is skinnier than the other. i was thinking wax worms to get them going. they are in seperate enclosures right now so i can gauge feeding ect.

thanks for the answers! im excitied about working with these.
