Are they handleable?
Tokays are climbers!! You need more height than you need width or depth. I have today sourced some captive bred Tokays in Essex that are still quite young. If you are interested send me a PM and I'll see what I can do for you.Trice said:Blah. I can't think of what lizard to get. Something handleable. And something i can keep in a viv no longer than 2 1/2 ft. Lol. Ah well keep on looking i guess. :S
Interesting. My Tokays are not as bad as that. In my experience, with the two I have now and the two a friend had a few years ago, the Tokays only bite as a last resort. A last form of defence. I think the ferocity of their bite is what gives them their reputation. NOT their aggression.tombraider said:Id love one myself too one day. But not as a pet to handle. I have a yellow spotted night lizard who wouldnt think twice about biting. I have to count to 10 and take deep breaths before i dare put my hand in the viv to clean things out and its only about 7in long :lol:
If you are willing to put in the time and effort with them young enough you will be able to handle them.Trice said:I'm not fussed about pain. But to me, i don't know if i would want an animal i couldn't handle. I can't explain it. Just need to have physical contact with them you know?
