Best Answer

I've had my Tokay for about 2 weeks now and they are tamable if you handle them correctly. he did bite a lot for the first couple days but you have to move a bit slow when you go to touch them. fast movements are a threat. you spook them, they get defensive. they will get use to you handling them and wont be a hassle to take them out of the cage. my Tokay actually no longer bites at me, but does bite at others. they know who their owner is. They will try to run off and jump out of your hands when you first take him out but in most cases, after being removed from the terrarium they calm down. You'll have a much better chance at taming the Tokay gecko outside of the enclosure, rather than within.
