Tokay Gecko Care

Tokay Gecko Care (Gekko gecko)

A tokay gecko can make an excellent pet for a seasoned reptile owner who is willing to put some time into training and be patient as the gecko is adjusting. They are timid and secretive by nature but can warm up to their masters with regular interaction. Some people even consider them to be good luck. Native to the rainforests of Southeast Asia, tokay geckos often live among humans where they can be found on walls and ceilings catching unwanted insects. The second largest species of gecko, tokay geckos are recognized for their bright colors and spots. The most popular color scheme to find them in is gray with bright blue and orange or yellow spots. Tokay geckos can lighten or deepen their color to blend in with their surrounding habitat. They have larger heads than other gecko species, thick bodies and strong jawlines. They also have tails that detach when threatened, though they do grow back in a matter of weeks.
