    Default Tokay Hatchling!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hey everyone, I just had a tokay hatch!! It took about five months for the egg to hatch at room temp. (about 70*F - 76*F). The female laid on a piece of wood that was too big to fit in my incubator, and I didn't want to risk taking the eggs off the wood, so I just left them there. But anyway, here are a couple pics. I took them with my phone, so I'll take some better ones soon. Enjoy!




    Here are some pics of the parents.

    Male (I've had him for about 4 years)


    Female (I've had her for about 1.5 years)


    The other egg in the clutch should be hatching soon, so I'll keep you guys updated!

    Congratulations!!!
    Y'know, I think I've now hatched about 20 Tokays and I still get a big smile with every one that hatches!
    And looks like you've got at least 5 more to go -excellent!

    Oh my gosh! The baby is SO freakin' ADORABLE! Man, I want a baby SO BAD. Congratulations on your baby and hope there are more to come. Your girl is BEAUTIFUL!

    I have one question, are the females usually the larger stockier looking ones while the males are less bright and slimer? I go back and fourth on the sexes of my Tokays...

    In general, male Tokays are larger and stockier than females. But there are always exceptions. Color is not a good indicator.

    To get a good assessment of the sexes of your Tokays, post some close-up ventral/cloacal shots like the ones posted under the thread Sexing Tokay.

    If you're not bleeding then you probably haven't taken a close enough photo

    Thanks! Haha, I know exactly what you mean!! I hatched a few several years ago. Tokays are definitely some of my favorite hatchlings The clutchmate just hatched tonight, I'll get a pic of it posted. Two more clutches to go

    Thanks! My male is actually bigger and brighter than both my females. He's about 12 inches with a regen. tail, and around 125 grams. My females aren't as long or heavy; I've seen some pretty huge females though, lol

    I think my pair just might be the odd pair because as far as I have seen and read my female is the brighter stockier one and my male is smaller and slimer. Lol! She wears the pants in their relationship, lol! I hope we are right and I get some eggs soon!

    Can't wait to see the other baby!

    Haha, that's funny. Well good luck with your pair I had my trio together for a year before I got any eggs from them.

    Here are some more pics (still not very good, because they were taken with my phone)

    I've only had mine together for a couple of months so guess it'll be a while. It's ok though, as long as they are happy i'm happy, egg or no eggs. Thanks for sharing!
