View Full Version : new tokays

I did a bit of impulse spending this weekend (already hearing it from the wife) at the show. (It was a really tiny and boring show, except for a few interesting animals).
Anyway, I was not going to buy a tokay, except maybe a CB male if I found one... then I saw this more yellow/olive female and took a chance. I also picked up the male they had available. They are fresh imports that the vendor assured me had gone through one de-worming. I'll de-worm them again alter to be sure. They are in rough shape, though I have seen worse. They both ate about 12 crickets last night. They are in separate quarantine tubs for the time being.
Since the male had relaxed a tiny bit, I'm seeing the same yellow on his feet as I see on the female. I'm just with nice-colored normals though.
First up, the female:

And the male:

My original girls are also getting a new home. An X-Tall exo was on sale at the show and I picked it up. Just have to set it up today for them... pics to come once it is filled and the girls go in.

They look stressed! Which is pretty normal in this situation, but that's awesome they ate so quickly for you! I am working with a group of imports at the moment and most of mine have started taking crickets. I waited a bit to let them settle in though. Most of mine came in that dark coloration but have lightened up significantly.

Guess you don't have to post the pics on iHerp now. Definitely not the worst imports I've ever seen, but they seem to be off to a good start.

Cool. Keep the meds and supplements coming!!!

The yellow feet and knees also occur on some of the Patternless Greens and some of the Granite from Indonesia as well.
