    Default Tokay sight


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Anybody got any science articles about tokay sight? Someone should analize their eyes and should know how they are seeing surroundings. i mean scientists discovered, that dogs see no colours, then someone should discover same things abou tokays.

    Honestly I dont see a scientist spending thousands of dollars and hours on a 10 dollar gecko. Dogs are a lot different.

    i dont think the price people value the gecko as has any relevance.... it's basically an adoption fee, it's a life form not a designer hand bag

    i've been curious about the same thing i just haven't looked into it yet, they do have a lot of stuff on tokays feet though. scientists are trying to replicate their sticking ability

    Your right price dont matter. What does is that it is a reptile and general public does not care about reptiles, they care about dogs and cats and such. I know about them doing research on GECKOS feet not specifically tokay.

    they chose tokays for the project because tokays supposedly have the strongest sticking ability

    From studies that I have done on specimens that I have obtained their eye sight is dependent on movement. As far as colour and the like, I do not have any information on that as of yet because it has never been relevant to my field of study. As far as the other person who referenced scientists spending all of that money on a "$10.00 gecko"...that is sort of what science is about. It has nothing to do with the price or that it is a pet, they are also wild animals found in the Austro-Indonesian Archipelago and are a very important facet of the ecology of that area, and in turn, the world. That, alone, is well worth spending all the money that is necessary on any research concerning any animal and it's taxonomy, phylogeny, anatomy, behavior, etc...
    I will try to come back and reply to this as soon as I find something pertinent to the issue. Come visit us at Southern Illinois Reptile Conservation and Animal Rescue on facebook or e-mail me any time at dr.herpetology1986@yahoo.com regarding any issues concerning the SCIENCE of reptiles and amphibians. I am privileged to see such an interest of the science of how these fascinating animals work!

    In reference to these comment on spending "thousands of dollars" a "$10.00 gecko"...that is sort of what science is about.

    Hello and welcome to our corner of the Geckos Unlimited forums. I for one, would be very interested in any science that you could bring to our beloved Tokay. especially when translated into layman's terms.

    All the best,
