Tokay Geckos by Melissa Kaplan

Description Native to SE Asia, these relatively large (12") geckos are pale gray with bluish spots when they have been in the dark, darkening to dark gray with reddish spots in the light. Like most geckos, tokays are oviparous insectivores. Young are 2-3" at hatching. Eggs are laid in rocky crevices or under the eaves of houses. The 2-3 eggs, laid several times a year, are sticky and adhere to surfaces. In captivity, they may be laid on the glass sides of their terraria. Incubation time for the eggs ranges from 2-6 months for the oviparous Gekko species.

The Tokay Page

The disposition of my tokays is great, considering they're tokay geckos. Most of them I can pet while I clean their cages. I have a few that I even hand feed. They only feel the need to bite when restrained, which I rarely need to do
