  • Baby updates!

    Holy cow Tokays grow fast! I couldn't wait any longer so I went ahead and cleaned the Tokay Nursery tonight, weighed the babies, and took new photos.

    AS-01: 37 days old and 8.6 grams (grown 6.2 grams since hatching)



    AS-02: 25 days old and 6.3 grams (grown 4 grams since hatchling). This one still stays pretty dark in its colors and still has a belly button!





    I put Storm in with them while I cleaned the Nursery. She looks gravid, but she just laid eggs 2 days ago.


    Then I had to do some group shots.




    Now as for personality, the oldest seems the most calm. The youngest kept jumping everywhere and gaping. It did help a lot when I turned off the fan lights and only had the red heat lamps to see by. They both calmed down even more.

      OMG cute overload!!! I can't believe how fast they grow, though. o_0 Gained over 6 grams in just over a month, that's ridiculous!! They need to talk to my crestie babies about how to do that...

      What are you feeding them?

        They took the handling well enough that I might just do that. And obviously I don't have to worry about them not eating.

        They certainly aren't sharing their secret with my Cresties!
        Gut loaded crickets and CGD with extra calcium. They don't eat the CGD as much as they used to, but it gives the crickets something to munch before they get munched.

                  Don't let the photos fool you. They did gape and bark (just a little barking) and one did bite. This is their natural defense so it can't be completely tamed away. Storm looks like she is smiling because she was gaping at me as well. She gets unhappy when I come in around her eggs. Even she still bites at that time, but she has long since broken skin and even longer since drawing blood. It STILL happens and I do feel it. You just also need to know WHY it is happening. I've just had Storm long enough, and ignored her protests enough, to understand what she is complaining about. If shes just "PMSing" I ignore her and take her out anyways. If not, I work quick (counting the eggs twice a day, refilling her CGD bowl, offering a pinky) and let her alone.

                  "Tame" for a Tokay means they tolerate you, not that they will never bite. It's easier to get them to except you if you start with a youngster because their most powerful bite is too weak to effect you thus giving you a chance to work with them.

                      Only Tokays I've met were ferocious little buggers. These guys look placid by comparison, even if they do bite from time to time.
