    i have had two tokays and have one right now, my first was able to tame down extremely well, in fact it was more calm then my leopard gecko i used to have and in one day i was able to hold my subadult male tokay gecko. it's easy once you know how to handle them, after that......you can easily tame one and have it like a leopard gecko. might i mention they are one of the best looking gecko's?

    yes they are. I have one already and she is fat and adorable. I believe she was wild caught because she has scars and ver VERY aggressive. But her aggressivness is respectable and her beauty is appreciated and she is spoiled none the less!

    yeah i was told most all tokays, are wild caught. i ordered a male tokay gecko it has scars on its head but over time when they shed the scars go away i know that because i had a female tokay gecko, it's scaring went away after about 3 sheds. good luck with yours

    Default great

    yeah alot of people tend to say that the tokay and the golden gecko are very similar in some spectrums, i love tokays yet own goldens and will say that most of my goldens are tame although i dont handle them frequently but have had to at times, one of my males however left a scar on my thumb when i was saving him from a fire within my house, both species in my knowledge are hardy,they are survivors, i think i want to pick up a few tokays after this thread thanks for the info

    and you know whats funny all my leopards will take meal worms from my hand, its great to see you had a tame tokay you cant always believe what they say about a species of reptile-the meanest gecko i ever had was a bibrons gecko but all the rest tame down and accept small amounts of human activity around them

    absolutely right i couldn't agree more, golden gecko's like the one i used to have are similar to a tokay in regards to when being handled they would get very nervous all the time. even though my golden gecko was less nervous every time, it always pooped on me lol. i love how my tokay gecko's only poop in one spot of the tank like every day or every other day. maybe they know who has to clean it up? lol.

    Cool First Post

    hello

    I have two gekkos. Like many people who frequent the local pet shop, I inherited mine from my about 12 years ago. You know..."you can bring the pet home" and the kid never takes him back to school but the Mom (me) gets attached and resolves to care for the gekko, hamster etc , for the rest of her life.
    In this case it;s a leopard (is that right) gecko. I don't know anything about them and realize I've been writing the word .. gekko...but did get attached to this little guy who I named Richard Gecko.

    to make a long story short last year I looked at him and wondered if he'd like a little "friend." The young man at the pet shop gave me a 9 month old F (Carmen) and said to put it in with him...watch carefully...see what happened. All was well until about a month ago. Suddenly He was attacking her. Bit her tail pretty badly.

    having read the chat boards I see that (duh) he is trying to mate with her and she was probably too young before. But when I put them together a second time...and came back later that day to check...he'd taken a chunk out of her tail. So to speak. And she is really scared of him.

    So I put a board in the tank..which is big..and cut it in half. But Richard freaks out a lot when he hears her. Like right now.

    What's a mother to do? Pull down the wall knowing odds are she's going to be bitten. Keep them apart fearing he'll be miserable (he's trying to dig under the wall as I write this)
    By the way...it didn't occur to me they would mate because he's 12 and in dog years...whatever..guess he's not a dog.

    So. Hello. Any advice?
