They tame better when living ALONE. I bought a wild captured one, but she is tame-and will even jump on my arm from time to time which means she wants attention.

I handfeed her daily but she lost the capacity to hunt on her own (you can throw dozens of crickets in there and she won`t eat unless you feed her).

DO NOT EVER force to go on you--DO NOT pick it up. Geckos are shy by nature, so gaining trust is a gradual thing. Once that trust is gained, she will jump on you from time to time and wont mind getting out of her terrarium on you, but I do this on her terms (when she`s in the mood). My tokay loves to be talked to. She looks at me with those big eyes and turns her head looking real cute :-)
