I just saw your article and had to reply. I live in Albuquerque New Mexico and have a Wonderful Tokay male named Joe.I have had him for 12 years and he is 14 in. long and quite beautiful! His mate has passed away, so he talks to me now at night. He is completely tame and has never bitten me,though will quack at me if he does not want to be held. He required a lot of taming as do they all,but once he allowed me to hold him he has been tame ever since. I have had many reptiles in my life but love him the most-he is just an amazing,wonderful animal!

Val- I am so glad you like Tokays, and have tamed your remaining pet down. I still think they are wonderful lizards!
