What Makes ReptiChip The Best Tokay Gecko Bedding


Tokay geckos, known scientifically as Gekko gecko, are one of the largest and most distinctive species of geckos in the world. They are easily recognized by their striking blue-gray bodies dotted with bright orange or red spots, and they can grow up to 15 inches in length, making them a formidable size compared to other gecko species. Native to the rainforests and human dwellings throughout Southeast Asia and some Pacific Islands, tokay geckos are named after their loud, distinctive mating call, which sounds like "to-kay, to-kay." This vocalization not only serves as a communication tool during the breeding season but also as a territorial warning to other males. Tokay geckos are known for their aggressive disposition and strong bite, which is quite powerful for their size, making them less ideal as pets for inexperienced handlers.

In their natural habitat, tokay geckos are nocturnal predators, feeding primarily on insects, small birds, and other small mammals. Their robust hunting abilities are complemented by their excellent climbing skills, facilitated by their specialized toe pads that allow them to adhere to various surfaces, including vertical walls and even glass. This ability enables them to occupy a diverse range of environments, from tree trunks in dense forests to the walls of rural and urban human homes. Moreover, tokay geckos play a significant role in traditional medicine in many cultures within their range. They are often used in remedies believed to promote health and good luck, leading to a demand that has placed them at risk from overcollection in the wild. Their striking appearance, vocal nature, and the myths surrounding their medicinal value make tokay geckos a culturally significant species in many of the regions where they are found.
