Yeah my other friend said her tokays love climbing through her hair. Maybe Bean was just in a bad mood, haha.
Most Tokay geckos are wild caught, and therefore still very defensive and bite very hard. I hear their bites do hurt, but Bean’s never bitten me very hard.

They’re very defensive animals. They will stand their ground, and bite/bark at you if they don’t want to be bothered.
Beanbag was captive bred, and I’ve had him since he was 10 days old. I handle him almost every day. He’s still a bit defensive, he’ll bark at me and yesterday he nipped me (it didn’t hurt), but if you want a tame tokay, your best bet is to get a captive bred tokay.
