    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hey all, i havn't been in the herp hobby for about a year, and now i want to begin keeping and breeding herps, on thursday i should be getting 4-5 blue phase white's tree frogs, i already have a side-blotched lizard, and of course, i want to get a couple of the infamous Tokay's or maybe some white-lined geckos. Does anyone know where i can get them on line, pics, and personal experiance. Any help would be great

    tokays in particular are all very easy to get hold of and cheap at that, they really are a very common animal in the exotic pet trade, so I'm sure you wont have any trouble finding them.

    Good thing about them is that because of their popularity, care sheets are very easy to find about them in large numbers so I'd check them and then check back if you have any specific care questions which arent covered by the care sheets. I have kept tokays (not white lined geckos sadly, but sure will in the future as they are absolutely stunning). If you get tokays you'll have a lot of fun with em, just expect to spend a lot of money on live food One of my favourite species though... am looking into getting some leucistics or calicos at the end of the year

    I think if the costs get to high for feeding i will just breed feeder insects like crickets. Have you tried this?

    No, I work in a reptile specialist shop so I get all the live food i want lol, but before I worked there i had the Tokays and really did spend an awful lot of money on live food, as i had a group of 4 tokays lol... They certainly do like their food. Definately worth the money you put in to their care though

    How is breeding? Is it difficult? How do you do it?

    You put a male and female in together and get your mum and dad to explain about the birds and the bees

    its that simple... incubation can be done either in an aincubator or a lot of people have success incuabting the eggs in the enclosure... the parentsd usually become quite protective of both the eggs and the hatchlings, you shouldnt have any problem with the parents damaging or eating them. rearing should be done seperately though due to the food size required by the babies.

    Tile is great, if your lizards are indigenous to your bathroom

    Tokays are very easy to get and cheap. They are also pretty simple to care for and make great pets if your looking for something to look at rather then handle. Tokays are awesome and remain one of my all time favorites .
