    I recommend finding a vet because he appears to have more problems than just the joint of his leg. His eye appears to be sunken in, his spine is showing, that may be a scar on his snout, and he may be very thin, but I can't quite see his hips. Did you get him recently? Is he housed alone? What is his set up, temperatures, and humidity?

    He's obviously very dehydrated, uncomfortable and has a more serious problem. Please take him to the vet as soon as possible. Just adding to the questions above, what were you feeding him and supplementing with?

    Not lucky. This morning he was died. Last time i put him together with one normal female. And they also lay out 2 eggs. So one week ago i saw him stop eating anything. And his legg has swell, i bring the female to another place. Female still very fat and strong. eat a lot.

    Poor me. In my country dont have any vet for reptile. Few days ago, i tried bring him to some vet but they rejected all. They dont know what is the problem with my tokay..

    So now inside the tank still have 2 eggs. should i live them there, or put the fmale tokay back? or just let them alone.

    I'm very sorry to hear that. The leg injury could have been from a fight with the female that got infected and swelled up. You haven't moved the eggs, have you? If they are shifted from the position they are originally left by the female, it can cause the embryo to be crushed by the yolk sac so it's best not to move them at all. I cannot say about putting the female back in though.

    Tokays are naturally very protective of their eggs and offspring, but I have had things cause a female to eat good eggs where a different female wasn't bothered at all. Sometimes you can't tell what can upset a mother enough to do that, but she has been in a different tank for a week so I would not chance it.

    Keep the egg tank the same temperature and if you were misting then continue that as well. The female chose that location because she thought is was the best place for them to develop. Every 2-3 days it would be good to mist the eggs directly as well.
