    Some tokays

    Here is a few from my collection. I have to say these are one of the most misunderstood geckos. I have a nice size collection, and only one that will still give me a little nip every now and then. I can honestly say with a little work any tokay out there can become the next leopard gecko that sticks to the wall

    thankyou, I keep telling folks that these geckos can become very handleable and I will post more pics to show this in the future. My wife has one that literally hangs on her neck (by its feet not mouth) while she cleans cages and walks around.

    I keep them in larger sterilites on there side at the moment, but we are ordering custom cages for them in the near future.

    Some day I may move away from breeding geckos and keep just a few for display purposes. If so, I may pick up a tokay to round out the variety

    I LOVE the variation in colors you can get with these guys!

    If you go with captive bred you will see a big difference if they are from someone that actually takes time with them. As for price the normals are pretty cheap still, but the morphs can be a bit pricey. I like to think of them as short term memory geckos. If you handle them on a regular basis they tend to stay pretty well mannered, but if let them just stay in there cage without interaction for a while they can become testy. Some will just croak at ya, but others will bite.
    Most of the ones that have been handled alot dont even give you a glance.
