Taming your pet is one of the greatest challenges of owning a Tokay gecko. Tokay geckos are very brave and aggressive animals. Unlike other gecko species that would normally take the flight when threatened, they would rather boldly defend their stand than flee or lose their tails. Because of this, they are unlikely pets for newbies. Nonetheless, with proper approach and technique, Tokay geckos can be tamed. And can be good companions.
