You really need to get a bigger place--absolute MINIMUM is 20 gallons per one tokay. I have known people with a single tokay in a 20 gallon tank and they do well and had them for years. 10 gallons is like being thrown in a closet. It is very stressful.

and do not try to handle your tokay for at least several months. Let her get used to you and learn you are not a threat. Holding a tokay trying to force feed it will only stress her out even more and view you as an enemy.

make sure temps and humidity are approprite. My tokay likes BED A BEAST and I keep it slightly moist. also mist the glass daily.

:I just got her a week ago. She is CB. I have her in a 10 gallon(hopefully bigger pretty soon) with a clay pot hide, a piece of vertical driftwood, several silk plants, and peat moss as a substrate.
:I've gotten her out and held her(which she didn't like at all) and put crickets in her mouth but she would keep trying to spit them out. I finally got her to swallow five friday and about 3 today.
:Can anybody help me??
:Thanks,
:Justin
