In Reply to: My Tokay will not eat! posted by wikkedTA on May 04, 2003 at 15:12:27:
All I've got to say is pinkies man. pinkies. I had a tokay that I would regularly feed a pinkie or two to a week and he got to where he would readily accept them. at first its a bit of a struggle (pop it in, spit it out, pop it back, spit it back) but eventually he would pop his mouth open when he saw it and wait until I had popped it in his mouth and gotten my fingers away before he'd start chomping down. How long have you had your girl? sometimes it takes them a while to get acclimated and often you won't even see them eat because they prefer to hunt at night. also, make sure your cage is warm enough. also, keep trying to handle your girl. I have had people tell me I was nuts for holding mine but he grew into the sweetest lizard in the world. best of luck to you! let us know how it works out
