Impossible to tame wild captured TOKAYS is a MYTH

Tokays are highly intelligent creatures, and they are adaptable to their environment. True some tokays are more aggressive than others, but the vast majority ARE tamable.

As for captive bred, they are born biting :-)

The keyword is their capacity to *learn*. Once they gain trust with their owner (and it could very well take a year), they learn you are not the enemy, but provider of food.

Bottom line you have to love your tokay. They can sense it, and they respond to it.

You have to understand their biting nature has nothing to do with being vicious, but they are small and scared of us monsters (to them we are as large as Godzilla :-)

How would YOU feel if Godzilla picked you up
