    Hello everyone! I wanted to share my tokay gecko setup with you guys! It is a zoomed skyscraper terrarium with many live plants and mosses. I will post my YouTube link itís much easier to watch than to write everything. Any feedback would be helpful. Always up for criticism as I am relatively new is the tropical animal hobby. Thanks for your time!

    Lovely setup! I really like your water feature idea, the effect looks really cool and the slate breaking up the water flow must make for a perfect water fountain for the gecko. NE Herp is a fantastic company. I can appreciate the amount of work and investment this took.

    Thanks a lot much appreciated! The plants really have grown in since I made the video. And my tokay always drinks from the water fall he loves it. It’s been an ongoing project for about 4 months I always decide to keep adding plants and decor lol. But thanks again for the response. Looks like your tokay is very friendly. I’m jealous lol I’m working on mine he’s not aggressive but always runs once I get my hand near him. Any tips on taming?

    If he's not aggressive, yet he runs, it means that he does not view you as dangerous, but he doesn't want to be touched. They are instinctively very uncomfortable with being touched, so I handle my Tokays only occasionally. That said, I find a real value to having them trained to accept handling, and it definitely boosts their confidence with people too. My Facebook page is Bayani Tokay Geckos, I have a video about working with Tokays to accept handling. And I stress that I don't do it often, and I'm conscientious when I do (no petting, no flipping them on their backs, etc). I am lucky to have some very sweet geckos that were willing to learn to do this. I even have one that is reliable enough to go to shows where i am vending. She blows everyone's mind and helps people get over their prejudice towards Tokays. These are smart animals, such a delight to be around.
