It’s been three years since our Tokay Gekco cousin passed away. Her name was Toga. She belonged to our Grandpa.

In her memory, we decided to re-upload her good by video

Wasn’t she a pretty gecko?

Seeing how tamed Toga was, Mommy’s students once said that Mommy’s family is a reptile tamer 😉 … Mommy with us, turtles, and Grandpa with gecko. Tokay gecko is harder to tame because they are VERY vicious and their bite can rip your skin easily.

I have shared information of Tokay gecko in my first Herptile Spotlight>> Here.

About Kroten

    It was nice to see those pictures of Toga. She certainly was very gentle for a gecko. Sorry about your loss, though.

  3. Toga is immortalized with this nice video of a pretty gecko…xoxox Vanilla Bean

    Thanks for sharing Toga. I’m glad she was friendly because I would need to play with her all the time. She was so sweet and cute AND gave kisses. I can see why so was so special to you.

      You’re welcome Colleen 🙂
      …but the video didn’t share the whole truth, she was only friendly with family members. I don’t know why, she immediately opened her mouth ready to bite when other people tried to touch her.

      She did! Every time she was out of her ‘room’ and Grandpa put her on his hand, she would start licking him. she was just like a little dog instead of a gecko 😉

    I’ve googled through internet when you said they’re vicious and I understand when I see some wounds from their biting. But they still beautiful.

      Their teeth re like razor. I saw it when my father got bitten, it was before Toga was tamed. in the wild, Tokek isn’t as pretty as Toga 😉
