    I'm going to suggest the he's cold. Unlike desert reptiles that respond to hot and cool areas over a large degree of variation in the wild, Tokay are tropical tree dwellers that enjoy an overall...

    You should be sure you actually have a pair, and not two females. Also, wild caught Tokay generally breed (Connect) between December and March.

    They must have good vertical nesting and egg laying...
