:The older it is the harder it will be to tame. Any wild caught tokay is an automatic lost cause and anything past 2 years I think would be too. Never know though, I tamed mine (above) with bear hands but thats when it had small teeth. Anyway taming it with a glove is the only way for a large tokay.
Well, for the most part I agree with you but my male was fully grown when I got him and had never been handled. nonetheless he was very easy to tame and it was done barehanded. I think that even large tokays are better tamed that way because a glove gives you a harsher, more awkward grip and most thick gloves are very large and threatening. I have never had my male bite me and have never handled him with a glove. just to say that there ARE exceptions. my female was another story...
