Tokay Geckos (Gekko gecko)
Tokay Geckos (Gekko gecko) are large nocturnal, arboreal geckos native to Asia from N.E. India to the Indo-Australian Archipelago. They inhabit tropical rain forests, living on cliffs and trees and often in human abodes. They are one of the largest geckos reaching 12 inches in length. Individual coloration can vary from dark slate gray animals to ones with beautiful powder blue backgrounds with many red spots.Although they can inflict a painful bite, captive raised specimens can be handled and make interesting “pets”. Tokays feed on a large variety of insects, small mice and some will take fruit.
