Tokay Gecko (Gekko gecko)

Description:

Tokay Geckos are grayish-blue lizards with red spots and granular skin. They will grow up to 1 foot long. Males are slightly larger than females and have a prominent V-shaped vent. These lizards can live up to 10 years if taken care of properly. Because they are quite aggressive, these lizards are not recommended for beginners.

Habitat and Tank Requirements:

This species is native to Southeast Asia.

These lizards do well with soil, coconut fiber, or reptile carpet as a substrate. Be sure to put enough plants, rocks, and wood in the tank for your lizard to hide in and climb on. These lizards love to climb.

One adult Tokay Gecko only needs a 10-15 gallon tank. They can be kept in groups of 2 or 3 in a 30-40 gallon tank. Do not keep more than one male in a single tank, as they may fight. A screen cover is recommended for your tank, as it allows better airflow and heating.

A comfortable temperature for these lizards is around 75-86 F during the day with a slight drop at night. LEDs or other low-wattage light bulbs work best for maintaining these temperatures. A small heat pad is recommended for basking.

Your tank should have a small, shallow bowl of water that is cleaned daily. This is for your lizard to drink from as well as wade in. Some lizards wont drink from a bowl. In this case some sort of dropper is recommended. Spray the tank with a mister every 2-3 days.

Diet:

Tokay Geckos will feed on small crickets, fruit flies, mealworms, wax worms, and any other insect small enough for them to ingest. It is recommended that food be dusted with calcium to prevent bone softening.

Handling:

Allow your lizard time to become accustomed to its new home before handling them extensively. Handling them little by little over a period of time lets the animal get used to you and reduces stress. Because they are aggressive, its not recommended for beginners to handle this lizard.
