Description

This is a wild tokay gecko that has been living in my house since it was a hatchling, we have the front door open everyday, but it prefers to stay inside, usually hiding behind the TV during the day and venturing out at night. Very shy and nervous compared with the common house gecko's that live here also.

Description

House gecko's are probably the most commonly observed reptile in asian homes, and these are plentiful both inside our home and outside.
Preferring to come out early evening onwards to feed, however they can be observed in the open during the day, usually in a shady area or inside behind a curtain. They tend not to mind being near by to others of the same species, although they do sometimes have territorial disputes with other males that come by, sometimes resulting in one losing their tail. I regularly see them with regenerated tails.
