Tokay geckos are native to East Asia and are one of the most iconic of all gecko species, supposedly they are the very reason geckos are called ‘geckos’. It is though that their loud call of ‘geck-ho…….geck-ho’ is responsible for the name for this group of lizards. They are a large and attractive gecko but are unfortunately equally well known for having a vicious bite to match their loud call. However their reputation for being aggressive is not always true and if you have one from a young age with a little persistence they can, and do, become tame. They are unfortunately almost always 'wild caught' in origin but these are genuine captive bred babies so should be considerably easier to tame.
